    QuestionButt licking

    Shelby has been constantly licking her butt, for the past few months, we took her to vet back in august,tested her poop (negative for worms) and they expressed her anal glands which helped some. Few weeks ago she started the licking again, back to vet we went, they said her anal glands were fine and gave her deworming treatment. What else could it be? We missing something? There is no odor or discharge that i can see. Any advice would be great...Thanks!

    It could be a sign of allergy. A change to another food may or may not help. Are there other symptoms? (ear trouble, paw licking, itchy skin)

    Agree that it sounds like a food allergy. When you switched foods, did you switch protein sources? Any wheat or dairy in the new food? Beef? Are her stools firm?
