I've noticed there are lots of pet questions. I've been a vet tech/surgery tech for many years. If you need advice feel free to ask.

I have a female dog who is 5 years old. She is very healthy but I have noticed something odd and I am not sure if it is the anal glands. She will be lying down and get up and sniff near her end. She then may lick herself or the surrounding area. There seems to be a smell like iron--not really blood smell but one of iron. I know that sounds odd to some people:-) Only one time did I see anything and that was on linoleum--it was brownish and really smelled bad. It doesn't happen every day.
