• Hi, my dog butt area is red . What's wrong? Thanks

    Hi Jennifer,
    I recommend that you take your dog into see a veterinarian. Redness in the anal area can be caused by a few different things including infection, skin issues, anal gland issues, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the redness and the treatment needed after they have examined your pet.

Need more information or advice?
