lameness and swollen anus - vets dumbfounded

is there any connection between lameness and swollen anus oozing brown mix of smelly liquid and blood? No enlarged prostate found, no anal gland problem..condition is chronic 6 months already. Xray shows mild arthritis. Rhodesian ridgeback, 6 years. mild weight loss. I thought it could be malabsorption problem that lead to Arthritis due to lack of nutrients, and dog is always hungry and has large soft (but noy diarhea) stool. not blood in stool not urine.
Bleeding stops for about the week after treatment with flagyl. today i noticed that the dog was runnin and then start limping. i saw immediate discharchge of mix from his anus.
Besides the ocassional pain dog looks happy
