Shih Tzu Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 7/28/2007
My dog has recently been sitting quickly while walking, much like she might be in pain. She doesn't whine ever and has recently had her stool checked, but sits quickly while walking. She'll sometimes go poop after she does this also. I've talked to the vet, and she thought it was her anal glands, but they've been squeezed in the last month and she's only stopped sitting quickly for about 2 weeks. Any ideas?

11/28/07 I'd look for food problems - too rich or too soggy or too much corn - or hot spots (skin condition, often aggravated by fleas, damp dirt, or corn meal). Try dry chow (Pedigree puppy or Purina One chicken) to help glands evacuate by stiffening stool. Hope that an idea will help. Kate
