    Default Lactose Intolerant

    I wrote before about Audrey and her scooting. I have been giving her benedryl for three days now twice a day, 2.5 ml each dose, and she is still scooting. My sister mentioned it could be lactose intolerant because I give her ice cream at night, just licking off the spoon the little I left there! Could that be something that could cause the scooting and the itching she has been having? I'm giving her the dose the vet said to give her.

    Could be a sign of food allergies. What do you feed her?

    Yes, any food can be an allergy source. I know of other dogs who are lactose intolerant and can't have yoghurt either. The most common allergen is grains (notably corn and wheat). Try eliminating them from her meals and treats.

    However, scooting often happens when the anal glands are full or impacted. Have you had them emptied recently?

    I had her anals emptied twice within two weeks. I don't fee her alot, because of her diet. The only thing I added was a little ice cream, and a few bites of bread or peanut butter.

    Too frequent anal gland emptyings can lead to physical trauma of the duct from the gland. Here's an informative video. The title is "Your pet's Anal Glands." Pet Care and Pet Health Video Library
