I have a 3yo heeler/kelpie cross that is a rehomed stray. I got her a year ago and right from the start she dragged her butt. Her anal glands are not enlarged and she is regularly wormed. I put her onto a low allergy commercial diet for 4 months...no change. I tried a home made low allergy diet...very strict ....no change. Expensive vet pathology tests to check for parasites, fungus etc. Plus skin cell test. Still drags her butt.
She is very active and otherwise healthy. Has a 3 acre yard and plenty of runs. She does have a few odd behaviours - sucks her "thumb" (dew claw) but does not do any damage to it.
Someone told me they had used a human hemaroid oinment on their dog for this problem. My vet said he would not reccamend this. What do you think?
