Our Great Dane Bender has had "happy tail", bare spot from hitting something while wagging. It healed and was just a bare spot for a couple of years. He did it again 2 months ago--we have tried ointment, wrapping with guaze, and taping it over--he won't leave it alone and 3 days ago it looked like a massacre all over the backyard as he chewed the tape and bandage off as well as the tip of his tale--bone showing. Took him to the Vet and he now has a 4 inch tale, but is not recovering as quick as we hoped--hopefully we can bring him home tomorrow while we wave goodbye to vacations for the next 2 years--he's now more expensive than all the dogs I've had in the last 50 years.
Poor boi... :(

It's a shame vet costs are so high in some places...
So sorry to hear all this, that's awful. My parents had a Golden that broke his tail and had it amputated. It was then a four inch stump.
He's doing better so we did not make that "last" vet trip--he wasn't eating much while he was there (4 days) so he was weak but is now back to what is normal, for him--just "no tail" which is kind of weird--also a 4" stub now.
