My poor baby has somehow hurt her tail. We had company for dinner and never heard her cry that something happened, but I her poor tail is hanging and she is all out of sorts. It is most certainly her tail b/c she bumped it on something and cried. I gave her an aspirin, but it's just sooo sad. She's suck a tail wagger !! Is there anything other than aspirin I can do?
Yup, dogs can have aspirin (non-buffered and NOT tylenol) once every 12hrs. I have a dosage chart from our vet that we used when she sprained a ligament in her leg jumping after fireflys. I call her a puppy, she is 60lbs and about a year old.
She is starting to settle down, but she just looks so pitiful without her tail : (
Your story did remind me of a cat my family used to have. I'm the youngest kid, so I've heard plenty of stories that are B.C. -- Before Chris. One was about the very cute kitten who somehow managed to have our heavy wooden garage door land right on his tail. It left him with a permanent crook . . . so from then on he was forever referred to as Bent-Tail.
