    Hi,

    I have a 10yr old spaniel, recently he’s been scooting his bum quite a lot. I’m talking the past 2 months every so often. The last few days he’s been leaving little yellowish stains on his bed and then last night he left a much bigger stain which had a bad smell.

    I’m thinking this could be his anal glands? Has anyone ever experienced this? Do you think they expressed themselves last night and now they’ll be fine?

    he’s fine in himself and gets a ton of exercise & fed a high quality cooked diet. He’s due wormer in 3 weeks!

    Not sure whether to take him to the vets or whether it’s already sorted itself out? Any advice appreciated :)

    I’d take him to the vets.

    If his AG’s are leaking and he’s scooting (which means he’s in discomfort ime) they need abet to deal with them.

    I agree a trip to the vets is needed, sounds as if his very uncomfortable.

    Is it a strong fishy smell? If it is then it is an anal gland problem and he needs to see a vet to have them expressed.
