I have a 6 year old Yorkie who has a problem with scooting on her rear. She has been checked for worms (negative) and has had her anal glands drained repeatedly. 1) Will this eventually damage the glands if this must continue to be done? The dog is obviously uncomfortable. 2) Could it be an allergy, and if so, how could we narrow it down to the source?
It is probably the anal glands and they just need to be expressed by the vet every once in a while. This will not hurt the gland in any way. vetcare
