I wanted to ask this in an "appropriate" way. There really is no delicate way to ask this. My little Roxypoo (one of her many nicknames! ) has had this problem a few times recently. She drags her bum across the floor. I checked her "rear" area, and it looks like my sons skin does when he has excema. I did a little research on this subject and usually it says this means that your dog has a parasite. She has been tested and is parasite free. I have also read that sometimes this can mean that your dog needs their anal sac massaged. Well, being no expert, I did try this and it seemed like it felt better to her. She does have allergies, which it seems is common to the breed as well. (she also fits well in my family, we are all allergic!) She's a very happy little girl (I say little because she is smaller than most female boxers. She is only now about 49 lbs. and she has slowed down in her "silver" years. She was "tiny" for a long time only weighing 35-40 lbs for many years-being the typical "high energy" dog that we all know boxers to be) Does anyone have any good ideas? Or are there any topical (safe) ointments or lotions that I can put on her on her bumm.?
