Hi there! There are 3 issues that I can think of that would cause Biscuit to be licking excessively at her anus and acting lethargic- intestinal parasites (worms), anal gland issues, or diarrhea. If the bathroom break in the middle of the night was because she had diarrhea, I would recommend a bland diet of chicken and rice for 3-4 days, with a gradual transition to her regular diet over the following 2 days. If the bathroom break was not due to diarrhea and/or you're not sure what is bothering Biscuit, it would be prudent to have her evaluated by a veterinarian at your earliest convenience so that they can help you figure out what's wrong. If any new clinical signs have arisen since you first posted your question, please feel free to let me know what these are so I can better assist you. Thanks- Dr. C
