Question Butt dragging

Since Beamer got his anal glands expressed by the vet on Monday, he has been dragging his butt on the ground quite a bit. Possibly less today than yesterday. Does anyone know how long this usually lasts for? The vet said maybe acouple days. Any thoughts?

He can do that for a few days, and then be ok typically.

In short he was at the vet to look at some sores on his chest and they thought she thought his anal glands needed it. (first time since ive had him in 13 months)

I think it typically last about 2 or 3 days. It could be a combination of the groomer shaving the bum and the vet expressing it. Poor Beamer is feeling it on both sides. Try getting a wet towel and soak it with very cold water, wring it out and put it on Beamer's butt. It might help to cool the burning.

Debra.. hahahaah... cause Beamer went to the vet because of the sores, and while there he had his anal glands expressed. I just want to know how long the scooting of his butt on the floor will last!

So now the vet says he should not be dragging his butt on the ground for more than a day. She now thinks we should test his poop for worms. I explained that he has NEVER dragged his butt before, so how would he have worms all the sudden? Should I be concerned that he is still dragging his but and sitting on his butt?
