    I looked for your problem online and this sounds like what you might be going through-

    Your dog emitting a foul, fishy odor from its behind is usually the first sign that their anal glands may be infected. Humans typically don't notice their dog's anal glands until they actually become an issue. Your dog dragging its butt along the ground or carpet is another sign- as is the trail of sticky substance they leave behind that smells like rotting carcasses. This is their anal glands expressing on your carpeting, and you need to take action. Your dog may also chew or lick at its rectum more often, and have watery or runny stools in addition to dragging their butt on the ground. If your dog just plain stinks, it's time to take them to the vet or professional to have their anal glands expressed.

    Hope that helps, either way I would take Bubba to the vet and get a second opinion.

    My first Frenchie had problems with her anal glands. After her vet expressed them a number of times, he suggested to feed her pumpkin twice a week. It worked like magic and I didn't need to have them expressed again. I hope Bubba feels better!

    Poor baby!!!! I wonder if he has a tail pocket? I know Frenchies can have them, and they are really quite common in English bulldogs. A tail pocket is like a hidden cave under the tail. A great place for bacteria and yeast to grow. The only way to know if one is there is to dig under the tail and above the anus.

    As for pumpkin, it's awesome stuff!!! You can get it at the supermarket, it's canned. Make sure you get 100% pure canned pumpkin- not the pie filling.
