To The Vet Again...

Well, just got back from the vet...somehow yesterday sometime, Beauty managed to dislocate part of her tail. About 6 inches from the tip she has a slight bump and that part of the tails seems to do it's own thing when she wags it. The vet said as far as these things go it looks good and that the best course of action is to leave it alone and give Beauty an anti inflammatory for 10 days. She also said splinting the tail might cause it to break in another location. Though keeping a happy girl from getting excited might prove to be a problem. The good thing is beauty is not wagging her tail like she normally does so this should be a pretty good course of action.

 

We are watching her closely and the vet also told us to watch out for an increase in the size of the break site or if Beauty actually seems to show that she feels pain or gets touchy about being handled etc.. or if hair starts to fall out of the tip of her tail below the site of the dislocation.

 

The vet is optimistic that beauty will be just fine.

Some time in the last three months, Sam broke his tail. He didn't make any fuss about it at the time, and it doesn't seem to bother him now. It's just that there's a kink in his tail about 3 inches from the tip.

 

In addition to what the vet said, make sure that the tip doesn't get cold--and stay cold. I expect she'll be fine.

So far the only adverse effect from the meds are Beauty now has some really smelly barn burner farts! They said loose stool which she may have but just when we thought the gas issue had abated from their food woes....
