Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Sorry to hear this. Do you know if he is up to date with worming? Also has he had he anal glands checked recently?
OK calling now
I'm afraid there is no answer when I call, this may be because you are in Ireland. Are you happy to continue on here?
OK. You will not be charged if I don't make the call.
It sounds like this could be an issue with the anal glands (scent glands just inside the anus). They can become overly full or infected and this is a common cause of rear end irritation. I would advise getting them expressed by your vet to check for signs of this.
Worms are another less common cause, so ensuring he is up to date with a suitable worming treatment would also be a good idea.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
You're welcome, best wishes
