What is a butt raugh?

Ninja edit: ....OH. Raw? He's rubbing his butt raw.

Is he wormy at all? I know some dogs will butt scoot when they get pinworms because they itch like mad.

Is he rubbing hair off? Does he have sores on his butt?

Haha oops... and yes he has been rubbing the hair off of his butt and I dewormed him with a powerful dewormer and still havent had anything. I havent seen any sores just a couple marks from his rubbing.

Get a fecal done. Just giving him a wormer doesn't mean he isn't still wormy. I'm not sure why else he's be so roughly rubbing he behind, unless it was a skin condition or something. Really, a vet would be your best bet.

May need cleaning around anus too, as that will make one rub.

And could be dock is dry.
