Dog keeps sitting down

Hi all,
I'm new to this site and wondered if anyone can help me! My schnauzer keeps sitting down and havin a right go at her bum. She's been wormed at the vets about 3wks ago so I know it isn't that but does anyone think it could be her anal glands?

Hi and welcome
I'd say it's probably glands, fleas or mites

As Tupac says most likely her anal glands or UTI [urinary tract infection/cystitis] or she might even be itchy in that area [allergy of some sort]

You need to take her to see the vet and rule things out. Try and get a urine sample to take with you so he can rule out UTI/cystitis

Could be the anal glands. A vet appt will help with the diagnosis but many groomers will express anal glands for around 10 I think, so could be worth a try?

Sounds like anal glands. I would go to the vet this time and if thats all it is then you can deal with it yourself in future (ask the vet to show you how)

I would probably agree with Alf on this one
