Tail Chasing

From Gary with dog Buddy
Breed: Lapso

Pet Symptoms:

When given food he furiously chases his tail… almost like he’s attacking something furiously. I think its hurting him. What could be the problem?

Tried:

Tried distracting him.

Our Advice:

Thank you for your email. Buddy’s tail chasing could be behavioral. However it could also be due to be pain in his tail or around his bottom. I would recommend that you make an appointment for him to be checked over by your local vet to ensure there are no underlying medical causes for his tail chasing.
