Like the title says, before I call the vet I am looking for some input and may not have to go to the vet. I think my dogs anal glands are bothering her because I seen her scoot across the yard on her bottom the other day, no big deal. What is a bigger issue is when she was crated while I was at work she licked her butt (her actual B.hole, not the cheeks) so much it looks kind of raw almost like a diaper rash. My question is can I put A&D ointment or similar product on that or should I just have the vet check it out. Her anal glands don't seem to be a huge issue. I've only seen her scoot a few times. Thanks in advance.
