Hurting Rear

When my dog is bumped in the rear, she gets up howling and runs in a tight circle barking after her tail.  We expressed her anal glands two days ago and she is on Interceptor once a month for worms.  What could be bothering her?

Dogs chasing their tails can be a pre-seizure behavior. If your vet has ruled this out perhaps her hind leg joints, ligaments and/or cartilage is an issue that once again your vet would be able to determined for you.
