Hello, I'm new to this space but my rescue dog (yorkie mix) has been having this exact problem! Originally I noticed her bum scooching a month ago and brought her to the vet. The vet claimed that her anal glands were impacted so he expressed them - and suggested that I put her on a prescription diet (her eyes are leaky and scratches from time to time). He said that he believed all three were related to a food allergies. Im a little hesitant to start her on that because she's not exhibiting any of the other typical allergy symptoms (incessant licking of paws or chewing of paws, and scratching to the point of breaking skin).Thank you for the tips! It’s crazy how similar our situations are. Our dog only leaks when she’s resting with me...never in her bed or when she’s sleeping alone somewhere. We already have a couch cover because of this ..haha...and yes it’s ugly but necessary at this point.
The worst part is my dog is very picky with her kibble and i finally found one that she will eat (Orijen Small Dogs). I've been adding more vegetables to her diet and thankfully she loves eating that.
In the past week, her bum has been leaking randomly (in 7 days she leaked 4 of those 7). and Similar to you both, she leaks only when she's sitting or relaxed on my lap. Not sure what I should do - someone recommended trying some sort of elimination diet to see what may or may not be causing this.
Thanks for all your insight. It's definitely been helpful.
