I have no idea what the official term is, but while in the shelter or kennel (rescue situation) both of my Labs worn the tips of their tails raw by wagging them against the chain link cages they were kept in. My Vet wrapped them and said to wait and see. I've re-wrapped them 5-6 times and have a Vet appt tomorrow to see if he thinks tipping the tails is needed.
Anyone with any experience with this problem? Any tips on keeping the wrapping on the tails? I wrapped Sawyers too tight resulting in a circulation problem, (found out about in time, no damage done).
