Customer Question

A ring around the dog's tail that is rough skin with significantly less hair. No inflammation, no redness, swelling or moistness. Just dry rough skin in a ring around the dog's tail. It is several inches from the base of the tail. This is the second of this breed we have had that has this.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: This one, Cameron
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cameron?
Customer: Not really. Lately he has had some stomach upset and is off his food a bit. But it has not been related to his tail. The tail has been forever, as it was with Bubba, our previous dog.
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.
