Tail damage on another Boxer

Boxer Two

Boxer Two

Another Boxer in the UK who was unfortunately not docked as a puppy. Again this Boxer constantly has problems with it's long tail, which regularly breaks open and spurts blood all over the house. The door jamb seen in the above picture is just one area which needs constant cleaning to remove blood.

The top picture shows the tip of the tail which the poor girl often licks to ease the obvious discomfort.

No doubt, the further painful experience of needing a portion of her tail surgically removed will be required, a procedure which could have been avoided by docking as a pup. We hope her recovery is possible with just one operation although at her age, more than one operation is often necessary.
