Default Weird Smell From Butt

We've been noticing at times that Lily has a strong order coming from her behind at times.

It's an odd smell that's hard to describe..It smells more like a chemical.

Last night she woke up and come over to me and I noticed it really bad. So I picked her up and looked and she was really flexing her bowl muscles and there was a weird liquid coming out. I wiped it off and if was blackish in color.

Does anyone have any ideas what's going on?

BTW she's a little over 1 yr old and is fixed.

I really don't know what it would be, but I think I would make an appointment to visit your vet. That sounds kind of scary to me. good luck.

Anal glands?

Do I even want to go there...You may have to elaborate there since I didn't even know she had anal glands?

I'll call the vet tomorrow.

yes defiantly anal glands are full and need emptying you can do it yourself but its pretty gross, book her into the vets they will do it, but its nothing to worry about!! they have just gotten blocked which is common in all dogs.

I've never heard of the liquid being black though. I'd probably take her to the vet, especially if they are impacted you wouldn't want to express them yourself. Unless you really know what you're doing.

i thought it was a browny/black liquid. Best bet to to your Vet, they will sort it and your feel much better knowing you went sooner than later.

Would that have any effect on her behavior. She's acting strange as well. Normally she would not leave our side but she's been hanging out just laying in different rooms.

Which is funny behavior for her.
