Q. My dog anus is swallowed and all red, can I do something

A. This usually happens either because of allergies or because of diarrhea. If he has diarrhea offer him boiled boneless chicken and rice every 6 hours in small portions. If he is eating and not vomiting, continue with this diet for 2 days.

After 2 days, you can put him back gradually on his normal food.



If he is scooting or nibbling the area, this might be allergies. In that cast bring him to the vet to get treatment
