Skooting??

Postby Blanco Suzy » Tue Jul 09, 2019 5:32 pm

This is going to sound odd, but here we go. I have had many whippets over my many years. I have never had a whippet that skoots like it needs anal glands expelled. Well, my 4.5 months old female puppy is doing that. I know many dogs do it and it is pretty normal, but I have never had this with a whippet. Should I get a vet exam? I am unsure. Thanks in advance.

I would definitely have the vet take a look, yes. In a pup that young my first thought might be worms rather than anal glands, but you never know what might be bothering her...and yes, we have had a couple that had issues with anal glands. Let us know what you find out.

Yep, going to the vet monday even though she has not done it in a couple of days. I am hoping that after a long bout of puppy loose stool she is just adjusting to "normal" poop.....whatever that is!
