Hi all Im new on the forum & have been reading all the good (and sometimes funny) advice. My 4 year old small dog Zara, (of mixed breed from a rescue centre) has had an itchy anus for the last 2 weeks. I took her to the vet, as twice a year she sometimes gets her anal glands squeezed manually (the vet said some dogs do not have the gene for this natural process to take place). This done I took her home & she was still scratching away... so 3 days later I took her back. The vet took a sample from her rear end as she couldnt see a reason for it. This came back negative, there was nothing to go on. She had a worming treatment a couple of weeks ago. Im puzzled. poor Zara Any advice ?
