Our dog, has had sensitive back paws for a while. We wipe his feet with a towel (for the white carpet's sake) before he comes in from outside, and he sometimes kicks when we wipe his hind paws. But just today something really strange started happening - he would be walking around and suddenly his back legs would jerk out, like he was kicking, and sometimes he would fall onto his bottom. Then, when he was jumping off the porch steps like he always does, his legs kind of twisted and he almost fell but caught himself just in time. So we were looking at his paws and suddenly (okay, this is really gross) liquid kind of shot out of his bottom. I'm guessing it's his anal glands leaking. I think it happened a couple of times. The thing is, he's never had either of these problems before, and for him to have them both on the same day is very strange. Are they connected? Has anyone ever had these problems before?
