Anal Gland Irritation

From: Lisa
Breed: Pug dog

Pet Symptoms:

I have an 11 week old pug who keeps sitting down and rolling his bottom backwards as if itching it he’s been vet checked 3 times and they cant find anything wrong with him. I really don’t know what to do with him its getting worst each day.

Our Advice:

Thank you for contacting Wellpets, the most common cause of this behavior is anal gland irritation, but if your vet can not find anything on 3 occasions it is likely that this may be minor itching and needs time to settle, I would advise discussing alternative treatment with your local vet.
