Why does my pup rub her butt on the carpet?

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

I just had her anal glands cleaned and she doesn't have any sort of allergies. I don't know if it has anything to do with it but I have her eating California Natural and always check her poo and it looks very normal and healthy.

Could she have internal parasites?

I was wondering about worms. Or is it possible that she has some poop stuck to her fur? High drama here when that happens, you'd swear Vincent ws being tortured until I clean him up!

She rubs her butt because it itches... BOL

From what it sounds like, she probably has irritated anal glands from being expressed. This happened to Chanel after a trip to the groomer. She also had a hard time going to the bathroom. I called the vet and they suggested icing her bum (wet a towel, put it in the freezer for about 20 min, and then on her bum) If you think it is severe, I suggest going to the vet.

WE all boot scoot, because weeee can, can, can!!!

Mommy wipes our po-po's with a Huggies diaper wipe when we poo. That way we don't leave skid marks on the rugs!

We were checked for parasites and our anal glads are PERFECT... just like to boot scoot!

We only do it maybe at most once every 2 or 3 months, though!way to go
