Whether you call it butt scooting or carpet surfing, a dog scooting his butt across the carpet is something to pay attention to. This movement your dog is making is trying to tell you something; namely that there is discomfort in the derriere. ;) Typically, the reason for butt scooting is inflamed anal sacs requiring expression, but it’s important to visit your local vet to rule out anal sac infection, tapeworms, or allergies.If it is determined that the scooting is occurring because your dog has trouble expressing his anal sacs (or anal glands) on his own, consider your dog’s typical stool. If your dog’s stool is generally soft, it’s possible your pup isn’t getting enough fiber to firm stools enough to express anal sac fluid naturally. Luckily, this is fairly simple problem to fix. By helping your dog have regular, firm stools, you can help him or her express those anal sacs with every bowel movement, which means no scooting on your carpet! Here’s what we recommend to help firm up stools and make those bowel movements every pooper scooper’s dream ;) You can find all these products on our store, as part of the Butt Scoot Bundle.
