Also question is, can I put Vaseline on my dog's sore bum?
It's probably best not to put Vaseline or any other petroleum-based product on your dog. When your dog is itchy, flaky, red, or bumpy, it's always best to consult with your veterinarian first. When treating a simple common rash or other skin injury though, there are safer at-home remedies to try than Vaseline.
Furthermore, how can I express my dog's glands naturally? Add fiber to your dog's diet. You can use canned pumpkin (not the pie mix!), psyllium fiber supplement, or even switch them to one of the high-fiber diets (either “over-the-counter” or one of the veterinary prescription diets).
Also to know is, why is my dog's anus swollen?
If the anal sacs appear obviously swollen and visibly large, or if they are hard, your pet has a medical problem and it should be addressed by your veterinarian. Your dog's entire bottom can become hot, swollen, and infected. Food allergies and anal sac inflammation are two common causes of scooting.
What cream can you put on dog sores?
Apply an antimicrobial ointment to the wound. Traumatic injuries are best treated with a broad spectrum topical antibiotic like those containing bacitracin, neomycin, and polymyxin B. If yeast is of primary concern, for example in dogs with allergies that develop moist dermatitis, miconazole ointment is a good choice.
