i have a min pin and chi mix puppy

and when she goes number 2 she has a hard time with it and whines then rubs her butt across the floor. she has water down for her and i thought the rubbing your butt was cause their anal glands are full but she is just a pup would she have her gland full already. is this s sign of something worse like worms? she is 9 wks old. she is due to get all shots next wkend the 27th.

  • It could be worms or it could be that she has eating something and it hurts when she tries to pass it i have seen this happen several times at the vets office where i work. Or it could be allergies and her bottom is itchy that can happen in young pups. Either way i think you should get her in before the 27th and have the vet check her out to be sure.

  • yes I would say worms

     Signs of worm infestation in dogs are varied and may include a stark, staring, dull haircoat, bloated round swollen belly, pale gums and anemia, licking around the anus, scooting or dragging the bottom along a floor, and vomiting. Puppies may also cry when picked up if the guts are full of worms and may seem uncomfortable at rest.
