Now Im just confused..scooting?

Vet's closed now. While at the vet I asked him to just check Onnie's anal glands, I wanted to make sure they were being expressed with his new food and squash supplement.

He took him to the back to trim his nails and check anal glands. Brought him back a while later, Onnie smelling nice and clean. He said anal glands were fine, everything perfect. His whole back side was wet, I figuired they just cleaned mr messy bum

Now he had his whole after vet freakout and is now calm but still not in the mood for me. His bum is wet after the diarhea he had and I cleaned it :sad:. Now a good while later he just did this walk and then shook his hind leg..walked a little more, shook it again. Kind of as if there was something stuck to it and then he was trying to get it off. He then went around the floor scooting in a circle.

What the heck. It cant be his anal glands, the vet said they were fine?! Is he just trying to dry his bum?

Poor Onnie

having just replyed to the other thread I wonder if perhaps he is a teensy bit constipated or they didn't quite get it all or he's just feeling really weird with the expression procedure The 2 times Duffy's were expressed she showed no reaction
