They can be cute but not when they do it on the carpet.

Could also be that the dog's butt just itches. After several trips to the vet (checked for worms, anal sac issues, etc.) the vet suggested that maybe she just had an itch in the one spot she can't reach. Admittedly, she does have a very furry behind. So I started giving her a good scratching daily and she hasn't butt scooted since.

my dog does this all the time and the end of about a month or 2 we have to take him to the vet to get his anal glands cleaned out. i guess this is common in small dogs. when he needs to be cleaned out you know cause he smells horribly fishy and acts like he's sick. I want to know if this problem is serious and if there's anything we can do to prevent that from happening? Does it have to do with what he eats?

Can anal sac disease be fatal in dogs? my 12 yr old german shepherd had a severe case of it and my vet reccommended he be put to sleep. He had it so bad he had maggots all over his rear end and could barely stand on his back legs. But now that I read articles on this disease, I think he could have been saved. I am so sad now. I miss my doggy.

I want to know what exactly an anal sac is and why it gets full. Is there something I can do to help relieve it before taking the dog to the vet? Why does she do it some days but not others? Is it caused by her diet?
