Many dog lovers might recall a dreadful experience. You are in your living room with a few visitors. When your dog begins shamelessly scooting their bottom across the floor in front of everyone. Scoot may be right up there with pleading and shagging someone's leg when it comes to the most humiliating things your dog does. Before you shudder (or giggle), it's a good idea to figure out why your dog has the scoots and what you should do about it.
It may appear amusing or unusual for your dog to wriggle over the carpet or yard on their buttocks. In truth, scooting is a dog's attempt to ease a problem back there. It might be an itch, discomfort, soreness, or pruritus.
