    DefaultOk everyone - Bum question!

    Right well :-[

    Ok for the past week or so Bobbie has been dragging her bum on the floor with her legs up as if something is irritating her and nibbling at her tail.

    We have wormed her and given her flea and tick treatments and she is still doing it! Any clues anyone!

    TIA x

    Time for a vet check - her anal glands may be impacted. You should not worm a dog unless you know for sure it has worms and what kind it has. Only the vet can tell you that. No chemical-related treatments should be used unless you know that is what the animal has/needs.

    Sounds like the anal glands need to be expressed and this is not something I recommend you do, although I have been told it is easy to do. If not treated they can become infected and then you have a bigger problem. See your Vet ASAP.
