Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi. My name is*****'m sorry to hear about this injury with your guy. I've seen similar injuries at my ER clinic numerous times - typically it is cat tails getting caught in doors. What most of the time happens is the skin of the tip of the tail is pulled off. These situations expose the underlying connective tissue / muscle. The best thing you can do is to get him to your vet so they can amputate that exposed tissue. It won't grow skin. It has to be surgically removed. In a way, it is docking the tail to remove this compromised area of the tail.
