    Default Butt Scootin Boogie

    So the hubby noticed yesterday that Chaos has been scooting a time or two on his bottom. I'm new with all this anal glad stuff. Does this mean I need to take him in to have them expressed? He is suppose to go back Monday for a recheck on his ear infection, so is it ok to wait til then or should I go ahead and take him? Also, is there a way to tell if they are full other than when they do the "butt scootin boogie"?

    For Samson the booty scooting started when he was a pup. This told us 2 things, he needed his anal glands expressed regularly (for him it's every 2 months) and he has a tail pocket that needs to be cleaned regularly. You can wait but that's up to you, if you can move up the appointment I would because obviously it's bothering him. The other way to tell when it's time for an expression is sometimes you can smell the glands, it's a really gross smell. It doesn't smell like feces, it's a different smell but still gross, nothing I can compare it to. I just track our visits so I can take him before it gets to the smelly booty scooting point LOL Same with the tail pocket I make sure to do it regularly so it's doesn't get to the point where it's bothering him.

    Maggie will occasionally do the booty-scoot but it is VERY infrequent and is not done repeatedly .... I think she just has an itchy booty she can't scratch so we end up having to do it for her!

    So really I'm not a lot of help!!

    I was going to suggest the tail pocket too.

    Not meaning to hijack the thread...but I recall a funny story about annal glands. I'll have to post it elsewhere...so not to hijack this thread.

    i dont think he has a "pocket". I wipe under his tail regularly and have never seen nor felt a pocket. But that doesn't mean anything as I said I am new to this. And he could very well just had an itchy bum yesterday because I havent seen him scoot at all and I have been home with him today.

    Yep boot scoot does usually mean they need their glands expressed although neither of my boys have ever done that ever. Go and figure. It is fine to wait until you go in Monday, no worries there. At least you will know for sure what the boot scoot DOES in fact mean for him after that.

    That is exactly how we know Vegas needs his glands done it happens every 4-5 weeks. for quite a while now. Just have them checked when you have Chaos's ears check. Some can get an external expression, but like everything else Vegas has to be difficult, he has to get an internal expression. Vegas has a little tiny tail pocket, hardly one at all, I am lucky there!!

    I know that this is a common problem in many breeds of dogs. Even some bullies have this condition as well. But before you just to any conclusions and have the glad manipulated, make sure that this IS THE PROBLEM. Could it be just an itchy bottom? They dont' have hands and the tongue is not stiff enough to really itch it. So if it is in the grass or unfortunatly on the carpet, watch to see how often it happens.
    And since we are being very PC about the topic, sometimes it is just a stuck piece of .... that needs to be scratched off.

    I have 4 adult EBD and only every once in awhile does this happen. I have never had the glad cleared out but I knew someone who had Daschunds that needed to be done often.

    Make sure you are using a Vet that knows and UNDERSTANDS Bulldogs and not just ALL dogs~

    Silva does the butt scoot but it is very infrequent. I think it is a itchy bum so we usually scratch it and wash her and she doesnt do it anymore. She has never had to have her glands taken care of.
