Hello there. My name isXXXXX and sorry to hear about Ion. That is good though that he is not in pain. The first thing I would check is his anal glands to make sure they are not clogged or full or infected. You can do that if you are comfortable expressing his anal glands which i would not recommend because it is a stinky messy job. So i would have your vet or vet techs do it. If one is clogged or infected it can be uncomfortable and make a funny feeling in the rear end so i would check that. If that is normal your vet can check to make sure there has been no ligament damage in the tail. The tail is made up of a bunch of bones connected by ligaments and if one is damaged then it may not sit regularly. It may not be super painful but it can look different. So your vet can tell by a good exam and feeling the tail up and down. but as long as it he is not hurting it may not require much medication or treatment. But again definitely have his anal glands checked just to make sure. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns. I would be happy to help. Please do not forget to rate my response so I receive credit for my time. Thank you!
He seems to be ok. He hasn't really done it since I spoke with you. I cleaned his bum (seemed ok but gave it a good cleaning anyway, just in case) I thank you for your time and looking into it even after you responded in the first place.
