The critical and tricritical behaviour of an anisotropic compressible Ising model are analysed. The tricritical exponents depend upon the line along which the tricritical point is approached. Various scaling laws from the general scaling theory of tricritical points are examined in the context of the model and some discrepancies are pointed out. As a consequence, some of the general scaling relationships have to be modified.
