Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I have posted!
Oliver is over 3 years old now
He is having a problem, though, that I am hoping I can get some help with.
He has ALWAYS butt-scooted and chewed his tail and backside when he needs his anal glands expressed, I would say every 6 weeks or so, I take him to the groomer and they are usually full. This last time was different. He was really scootin' so I wasn't surprised when the groomer said they were really full. Then when I took him home, he immediately started chewing again. He never does that after being groomed! I took him back to the groomer a couple days later and they gave him some sort of oatmeal bath and said that should help but it hasn't. That was a little over a week ago. Now his poor little butt is red and raw and I'm worried he might be sick or something.
He's still playing and running around. He's still eating his food and drinking water. He seems fine except he spends hours chewing!
Has anyone else dealt with this? Any ideas of what I could do for him? Should I take him to the vet?
