I am sorry your boy is having trouble.
Can I please have some more information about his condition?
How old is he?
How long is his tail like this?Was he outside or exposed to cold water?
After your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer or if you prefer we can speak on the phone.
This can be a sprained tail. It is called cold or limp tail and usually affects dogs
If this is the case it will heal with rest. Apply warm compresses to the tail and back 5 minutes on and 10 off for two hours.
You can make a warm pack by adding raw rice to a sock, tie the top and warm in the microwave.
Please let me know if this helps and how he is doing.
