Not a joke
My male dog licks his anus quite often. I've looked at it and there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with it and there is no irritation. There are no worms in his poop. I understand that dogs do this sometimes, but he really does it a lot. It's bothersome for me because he will start licking while he is laying on the floor and after a few minutes, he has broadcasted an awful stench throughout the room. And when he's done, he wants to give me kisses and I have to push him away. Could this be an issue with his anal glands? Or just normal behavior? Any ideas?
