    Has anyone ever dealt with "Happy Tail Syndrome"?

    Brennan is currently suffering from a case of this. It's where they bang their tail on hard objects and bust it open. Apparently it's really difficult to treat and I can see why. I've been cleaning it thoroughly and started wrapping it today. Going to change the dressing once a day for the next few days to see how that goes. He keeps knocking it against stuff and making it bleed, so this should help. He's quite the happy boy.

    Anyway, just wondered if anyone else had any treatment method suggestions to share.

    Thanks!

    I know, I'm being overly concerned mama over it and he's just wagging his tail and being his happy usual self.

    Awww, Brennan! I'm glad you are happy, but I'm sorry you are knocking your tail on things! Please have your people give you a hug for me- maybe that will help a bit I hope your tail heals very quickly!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    Poor guy! I've never heard of a dog busting its tail open like that, but I can certainly see how its possible. I say bubble-wrap that tail!

    Sending healing vibes for Brennan.

    This does make me wonder if this happened historically, and is why some breeds have docked tails!
