Anonymous:Since a few days ago my dog started licking at his butt and dragging it along the floor several times a day. What's wrong with him?
It can be an allergy, an infection or abscess in his anal sacs, or they can be full. You need to see a vet. If itching becomes too frustrating for your dog, you can apply hydrocortisone cream (2%) or warm compress on the area to relieve his condition before you're waiting for a vet appointment.
Anonymous:Thnx! Can this be because of worms? And what can be done if the problem is full sacs?
If a small amount of hydrocortisone cream is ingested, it doesn't usually cause a problem. Large amounts can cause stomach upset, increased thirst and urination. My advice to apply it was meant as a temporary solution to relieve the dog's condition while waiting for a vet appointment. I did not mean applying it over and over again until the dog ends up licking off large amounts.
