    DefaultBad Smell

    Hi All,

    I was wondering if any of you could help me with a little, stinky problem. Hogan has been licking at his rear end constantly and the more he licks the more it stinks. I was wondering if any of you knew what this might be? I was thinking it might be anal glands - but don't know any symptoms for it. We would like to save a trip to the vet if we could (because of his recent TPLO) and a car trip too right now. Any thoughts on this stinky matter?

    Melissa and Hogan

    It sounds like an anal gland problem. He may need to have them expressed.

    Any recent changes in food? are his poops all normal?

    If there is an anal gland problem, like impaction, you should be able to tell by feeling around the anus. The glands are at "5" and ''7"....
