One solution and preventive measure has been conspicuously absent thus far and that is deworming.
Considering how big of a role digestive system worms play, deworming is one of the best tools in your arsenal when it comes to dealing with scooting as a result of irritated anal glands.
There are many ways to tell whether or not your dog has worms and if they are the cause of the scooting.
One of the best ways is to observe the dog’s poop for things like whole worms, worm segments, or even their eggs. You may also notice blood in the stool.
Another telltale sign that it could be worms is weight loss despite having a good appetite.
With time, even the appetite will reduce. Finally, if they have frequent periods of constipation, it could be that the dog has heavy infestation with obstruction.
Deworming is often very effective when it comes to getting rid of these problematic parasites.
It is recommended that you get your dog dewormed every 3 months.
This count whether your dog is a full-time indoor pooch or they get to go in and out as they please.
In addition to keeping to the recommended schedule, you should also ensure that you use the right dewormer. Panacur C Canine Dewormer in this case is our top pick.
The fenbendazole granules can be given with both dry and wet food.
Just follow the instructions and make sure to consult your vet for confirmation of appropriate doses for your dog.
