    DefaultSmelly bum and licking

    My 4 year old yellow lab has come down with a rather stinky bottom and has been licking under the base of his tail often? Is this an anal gland issue and what should be done?

    Take him to the vet, its probably the anal gland!

    Yup, sounds like the vet needs to clear them out. Call right away because he's probably very uncomfortable.

    That would be my guess. Time for the vet.
