So Maverick is almost five, and happy tail is a new occurrence. He had happy tail for a day about a month ago, and I checked it out - he was fine.
Now he has had it for over a week. I clean it up and put a bandaid on it. There is blood spatter all over my place - that doesn't concern me as much as the fact that it is still happening does. I usually take the bandaid off when I kennel him up and he gets a white towel most days so I can see if he bleeds - which he doesn't in the cage. I take him out very fast so it doesn't pop on the kennel bars, but he still bleeds. Doesn't gush, but good enough to bandaid and sometimes soaks through a bit.
It looks like a small circular scab that apparently splits a bit and bleeds every day.
I looked at a couple remedies and I will be getting some vet wrap soon to increase the pressure some, but at what point do you consider docking?
I DO NOT want to do it, but if it's necessary for his benefit I will. I can't stand the thought of not being popped in the face with his bull whip
Please let me know
