Dislocated Tail

Would you believe I managed to dislocate my baby's tail last night!!!!!

I was towelling her dry after her bath and all of a sudden she let out this horrendous yelp and then wouldn't let me near her. She spent the rest of the evening looking extremely grumpy and uncomfortable and wouldn't let her tail be touched.

She had to go to the vets today to get her booster, so I asked her to look at Sasha's tail just in case. Sure enough she said that it may have dislocated just near the top and has given her anti-inflammatorys for a week.

I feel sooooooooooooo guilty - my poor baby girl! Cautionary "tail" - be careful when towel drying your doggy!!

Poor Sasha

I am sure she knows you didn't mean it.

Thinking back that could be what happened to Tia's tail a couple of years ago. She still has her entire tail - We were out walking them when she tripped in a pot hole - she let out a yelp at the time and after that she would let out a little moan if you touched her tail but she didn't seem to be in any pain apart from that, so we didn't take her to the vets - we thought we would wait and see how she got on over the next few days. It stopped causing her any pain so we thought no more of it. But even now if you run your hand down the entire length of her tail you can feel a slight bump.

I hope Sasha is feeling better soon and it doesn't put her off having a bath!!!

For the size of the dogs you wouldn't think that sometimes they can be so delicate in certain areas would you.

I am sure she will love all the extra attention you will be giving her until she is feeling better.

Caroline, Tia, Kieri and little Henry xxx

Re: Dislocated Tail

:sad: oh dear hope she feels better soon she wont want to be getting a bath for a while :wink:

Did you know that the reason why there tails where cropped is coz they break so easily :ohwell: as you know how exited your Boxer gets and waggs that lil stump first then the bum then the whole body goes
there tails kept getting broken in the old days so it was decided to remove tails as more of a benifit than cosmetic same with Jack Russells all tho thats for hunting reasons:sad: same princible involved

i know the differance as DeeDee has a cropped tail and Homer has a full tail how much power is in that tail is crazy :roundnround:

Havent found a vaild reason why ears are cropped yet tho apart from cosmetic which i dont agree with myself but !!
American Boxer Club seem to agree with it
But not White Boxers where is the sense in that ????????

anyway enough babbling on
hope Sasha feels better soon give her a Big hug and Kiss from Me, Homer + DeeDee
dont feel to guilty she's probably loving all the fuss lol

Re: Dislocated Tail

I did`nt realise boxer tails were so fragile mine don`t have thiers, Good to know that the tails are`nt docked for cosmetic reasons , cropped ears i don`t agree with either but then I don`t live in America where it is commonplace and Breed Standards there must agree with it.
Yet you can still euthanise whites at birth??????????????????????? LOGIC -there is none than can justify this.

Re: Dislocated Tail

Probably should point out that Sasha's tail is docked!! God knows how I still managed to dislocate it - I cannot image the damage that could be done with a full tail. I have heard of many an occasion of a boxer with a broken tail bless them.

There is no sense in this world when it comes to money and profits Yvonne, white boxers can't be kennel club registered and are therefore not worth the time and money it takes a breeder to bring them up. That's my take on it anyway!!

Sasha is recovering well from her dislocation. She hates the anti-inflammatories but luckily they are in a syringe so we dont have much of a discussion about it! They seem to make her feel lousy though bless her!

Re: Dislocated Tail

How is Sasha now?

On the tail docking theme, do you know that when it first came out here that you could only dock a working dogs tail that some breeders were recomending shutting the tail in a door so that the vet would have to dock it!!!!
Horrendus or what?????????

Could you do that to your precious dog, I'm sure I couldn't

Re: Dislocated Tail

That is gruesome!!!!!!!!!!

Sasha is a lot better now, her tail doesn't seem as tender. I will certainly have to be more careful next time I bath her!

Re: Dislocated Tail

karen, i am just comining into this.. i was just coming in from work and looking up photos on boxers. this is where i ended up. not sure how? but, it is interesting, that your pups tail broke. i have 5- boxers so i am always looking for any and all info.all my boxers came with tails already docked, and a couple are rescues, and ones tail is pittiful. but, she is a sweetheart. i was just wondering because i have 2- white sisters whom their tails are longer docked. longer than the others here. and being white and young they are always getting into things they should not. they get at least 3-baths a week. and i keep puppy wipes on hand at all times. it just kinda made me wonder? do i need to be extra careful with thier tails? by the way, i hope your pup is doing ok. i just never ran upon something like this and am now woundering. hope all is good and well. stephanie

Re: Dislocated Tail

Hi Stephanie and welcome to the site.

Firstly, Sasha's tail is fine now thank you, although she always gives me a dirty, sideways look when I am towel drying her in that area!! Bless.

I don't know if you have to be extra careful with the white ones tails to be honest - I think it's just a case of accidents will happen, although I agree with you that they need a lot more cleaning! Mind you, if we didn't worry so much about keeping them nice and white, it wouldn't be a problem! My red girl only got bathed when she stunk - not when she got a little muddy!!

My neighbour has a black lab and I noticed his tail was all damaged at the end, so I asked why! Apparently their other dog (retriever) sat on it in the car and broke it!!! So I dont really think you can cover for all occasions!!

I dont know how you managed to find your way here, but now you are I hope you stay a while and tell us about you and your babies!
