Ari, it sounds like Jojo has either an anal gland abscess or inflammation. These are sort of common. I'd keep a look out and monitor the situation. If it is a abscess he may scoot to burst it. They are painful. I had a chihuahua that had a burst anal abscess and I took her to the vet who 'cleaned' it out, and I had to give her sitz baths every day for a week.!! I might try and add some plain pumpkin to Jojo's meal to help him with the constipation. Since he is not scooting, maybe it was something about the bath?
