We have a one year old Lhasa Apso / Poodle mix female that is always licking its butt. It doesn't seem swollen or enflamed and there have not been any other signs of problems with her. We are getting worried that this may be an indication of some problem but just don't know. Any ideas? Thanks!
Take her to a groomer or vet and have her anal glands checked. Some dogs can not release the fluid, and in time it can become impacted or abcessed. You rarely see any signs on the skin, but the dog show discomfort.
