Scooting in Dogs and Cats 


Herbal nutrition to help clean anal glands to reduce scooting and to help support anal gland health in cats and dogs. 

A healthy digestive tract is critical to overall health and well-being. The digestive health of an animal can impact not only the breakdown and absorption of nutrients, but can also have a significant impact on other body systems including the immune system, the liver, bone marrow and adrenals.

Dog and cat scooting can be caused by pain, itching, or a dirty bottom. Your dog or cat may drag or rub their anal area on the ground or against an object. The underlying cause may be related to anal gland diseases, worms, allergies (food and environmental), as well as a low quality, low fiber, low protein and a nutritionally deficient diet.

When a dog or cat scoots, the hind legs are extended as your pet drags himself forward and slides across the floor on his bottom. Our pets can't scratch their anal area, and most can't reach to lick or chew so scooting is a way to relieve pain and itching as well as to get rid of unwanted fecal matter. 

Dog and cat scooting is likely quite painful. It is also not hygienic or safe for your pet because it can drive bacteria into the skin and into anal sac ducts. And if your pet is repeatedly scooting, your pet's bottom can become red, irritated, swollen and infected. Dogs and cats can both be affected, although typically it affects dogs more. 

Common signs of scooting include: 

Frequent excessive licking at the anal area

Circling or chasing its tail to lick the affected area

Foul odor from the anal area

Discharge in the anal area

Swelling in the anal area

Common causes for scooting include: 

Anal gland diseases (impacted, infected or abscessed anal glands)

Anal gland tumors

Flea infestation 

Worm infestation

Ringworm infection

Yeast infection  

Food allergies 


Skin irritation from grooming from too close of a shave or cuts
