Scooting but not worms or anal glands.

Anything else I should consider? DDog is 2 years old.
Vet released his anal glands again on Tuesday, he's up to date with worming etc.
What else can it be?
TIA

Bump for the evening crowd

Wipe his bum? Our DDog has a notoriously dicky tummy and sometimes has a scoot when his bum is a bit dirty. Sometimes he does it because he needs a poo.

My dog does this, due to allergies and his skin being irritated. He chews his paws too.

Thanks for the replies.
Sorry to hear that littlecandle. Our dog has healthy poos apparently so that's not the case.
Bamaluz, that sounds like our fella. What breed is your dog.?

He's a mongrel, part Staffy, other parts unknown.
He has various food allergies and a particular plant but the vet said they can't test for everything so we're not sure what else it might be.
He was put on Piriton but it made him too drowsy so I took him off it.

My parents' Tibetan terrier has allergies and it makes her skin very irritated and itchy. She does quite a bit of scooting, plus paw chewing like your dog Bamaluz

My dog loves eating grass. Does not do him any harm but sometimes a blade gets stuck in his bum and I need to pull it out after his scooting does not work. Sorry if tmi!
