Dragging Its Rear End
We’ve all seen a dog dragging its rear end across the ground. At first, it’s a pretty funny sight. But this behavior, also called “scooting,” is a sign that your dog needs medical attention.
Scooting is usually a dog’s attempt to release an impacted anal sac. This condition is more common in certain breeds than others, but is universally uncomfortable to the dog when it occurs. It requires draining the affected organ, which your vet can take care of.
