Weird poo...

Sorry about the topic but we aren't sure if we have a problem. In the morning when Scooter goes out the first time he pees immediately and then will squat like he's going to poo but he doesn't do anything. I can smell poo but there's nothing there. He has never been easy to predict when it comes to poo, sometimes he goes once a day or sometimes it's 3 times. He eats at the same 2 times every day, same amount, same food and we haven't changed anything in his diet.
Could he have an anal gland () problem? He doesn't drag his bottom or anything.

That's a head scratcher Ann, not sure if it's anal glands or not. Perhaps your vet tech would be willing to show you how to express them. I've tried watching that video but it just didn't click for me. I had to have someone show me how to do it. Here's the video link: http://www.expertvillage.com/video/8...ics-glands.htm

Is he drinking enough water? Maybe he is constipated.

I told DH I thought it might just be gas. We also noticed that he prefers to go in the pine straw and we have leaves falling here already so when he begins to poo his bottom is touching leaves. I think maybe he doesn't like the feeling so maybe it's bothering him. We're going to ask the lawn guys to blow out the leaves and gather them so hopefully Scooter will get back to normal!
Thanks for the replies.
