• My dog has a swelling in the tail. What can I do ?

    Hi Elaine,
    I recommend that you take your dog into see a veterinarian. Swelling in the tail can be caused by a few different things including injury, infection, or a mass. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the swelling after they have examined your pet. The treatment needed will depend on the underlying cause and severity of the swelling.
