    All you described-- if not tail pocket or anal glands, I'd ask your vet to do an xray to rule out blockage

    I agree w/Christine... my Wally asks as you describe when his anals are full. I would have another re-check w/the vet.

    Hello thank you for all the comments.

    Just an update he is eating now. Not as before but he is eating what is put down for him. Drinking fine as per usual. He now just seems to be really irritated by something at the rear as i mentioned before.

    Tail pocket looks ok. Although he now seems to be looking a bit sore round the bum. Possibly from where he sort of drags himself as he is craning his neck round.

    Will probably have to take him back to vets but as they are not bully specialists is there anything particular i should ask them to look at?

    Thanks for the continued help

    Just to add the vet drained his anal glands a few days ago...

    Has the vet done a skin scrape to check for mange or dermatitis?

    for Winston that this heals, pronto!

    Walter had his anals drained last week, and he still is acting kooky about it. I honestly think it takes a few days...

    I would press for an X-ray from the vet. There might be something lodged in the lower rectum/intestine. Growing up, my dog had gotten hold of a chicken bone and a splinter was lodger vertical in his rectum and needed to be surgically removed.

    Hi all thanks for all help.

    Just a quick update. Winston was thoroughly examined yesterday head to tail. Absolutely nothing wrong. Vet thinks he has irritated skin and gave him a steroid tablet. As of today he has been back to his usual happy ways. No more craning his head etc and he is now eating like a dustbin again. So fingers crossed hes all good now!

    Thank you all again. This is such a helpful community. Greatful for all advice received!

    BTW, so good to hear Winston's on the mend!
