English term or phrase: the dog ‘scooting’ along the ground
Bonjour,

Dans le cadre d'une traduction du site internet pour un produit de vermifugation de chiens et de chats (partie du site non destinée aux professionnels), je suis face à la phrase suivante :

Symptoms include worm segments causing irritation of your dogs anal area, leading to the dog ‘scooting’ along the ground.

C'est le terme "scoot" qui me pose problème. Puis-je utiliser "se traîner" ? Cela ne me semble pas du tout idéal.

Je vous remercie.
