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?

Just a thought: From time to time, the area around Shiloh's "pee spot" becomes red and irritated looking. The vet explanined it as being something like diaper rash caused by the area not getting completely dry. It must be itcy too, because she does a version of the butt scootin boogie that is a bit different from the anal glad problem. I think she is trying to get at that spot. Maybe Polly is also trying to scratch a different itch!!
Thanks, Judy, I believe you mentioned this to me before, and I forgot to check on it. I wanted to ask though: is it greasy? A tech at my vets suggested vaseline ointment, but I wondered how putting something that greasy and sticky would work. Wouldn't dirt, pet hair, etc. (though I can't imagine how something like that would get on my floor :eyes: ) stick to her bottom when she sits down?
