My pug recently started scooting on the carpet. A quick glance of her rear end shows a swollen area/lump on the top side of the anus. It's about the size of a pencil eraser an its red and itchy. Any ideas of what this could be?
Could be an abscess, I recommend taking your dog to the vet ASAP to get it checked cause if it is an abscess or an impacted anal gland, if left untreated can get much worse. Happened to my old roommates dog.
The bum can get sore etc from rubbing it on the carpet like carpet burn. Treat for worms as you need to stop whats making it itchy. An all wormer is what you want. that bum dragging is a thing dogs do when they have worms & an itchy bum.
