Hello I have a three year old beagle/hound mix. He is in good health runs all around after the tennis ball outside, energy seems fine. I have recently heard his joints clicking everytime the poor guy walks. Isnt he too young to be experiencing arthritis? He has also recently been leaving behind a small turd in the house, hes very well potty trained, and for some reason he does this like every 4 or 5 days it seems. Is he having anal issues as well. His stool outside has been fine. I have also just had his glands expelled so he is not scooting. Any help would be great!! Thanks so much!!

I'd take him to the vet just on the joints, and then ask about the bowel issues. Yes, 3 is too young for age-related arthritis, but genetics . . . well, I got osteoarthritis at 27. I'm 36 and have worse joints than my coworkers in their 60s. I'd get him checked out.

Also make sure you are feeding a high quality food? What brand do you currently use?
