I know there's been lots of posts about scooting and Anal glands...but Polly scoots--that is, she tucks up her hind legs and pulls herself forward on her front legs...
Now I've checked her glands to the best of my ability, and I don't see anything that looks like what people have described.
Could it be something else? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif
I forgot to ask when I dropped her off at the vet this morning for her spaying...I hope I remember tomorrow when I pick her up?

4 things can cause this movement:
1- Worms. If she has not been dewormed in the past 6 months, I would simply deworm her.
2- Anal gland problem. You may be able to see if they need to be emptied but you cannot see if they are mildly infected. Only a vet can tell you that.
3- Foreign object. Your dog may be trying to pass something he swallowed although he should not have...
4- Personal pleasure :rolleyes: This is more likely in males.
