hi everyone, my big boy matrix started to lick a little at the base of his tail on the underside! now, i had him for 14days on metronidazole because his anal glands were leaking and thought he could be developing PF but now he's been totally fine since he finished the antibiotics besides this licking, it just seems that he licks a little more then usual! i thought maybe because he had to be shaved around his butt and now the hair is growing back and tickles him lol but usually they munch when they have an itch!! any suggestions?

It could be worms, anal glands, PF, or even the hair growing back. Hard to tell. I would call the vet and ask what they suggest.

Did they go in and clean out his anal glands REALLY good? Over full glands (and leaking ones) can cause dogs to lick their anus.

I agree with Lisa, the glands/area is bugging him again, I'd go back to the vet before it gets worse
