I never saw any with my chis but my hounds yes. I also never really inspected. I have seen pups scoot for anal glands, worms, and to just mark their territory so my guess would be one of the 3.

Douglas scoots for no reason. Glands don't fill up so he probably is expressing them on my floor...ew.

Definitely get him checked. It might just be the ticking.

Well trip to the Vets went Okay. No definate answers really. Basil doesn't skip or limp on his back leg that I am concerned about, something about it juts doesn't seem quite right. It looks a little stiff and on occasion he sorta swings it out to the side and round. Any way the Vet manipulated his leg thoroughly and said that it felt Ok and then xrayed his Hips as that can also be a common problem. No problems there either. So we have some antiinflamatory meds incase it is injury related.

She had to empty his glands again, so it would appear that he can't do that himself properly, even though his stools are firm. She said the best thing is for us to learn to do it ... I am really not looking forward to that! And that the discolouration around his but is nothing to worry about, it is just skin pigment. The same goes for his nail, although I am tempted to pop a bit of canasten on it just to be sure.

Thankyou for all your help Ladies! x
