Good Luck!! Hope all goes great and heals quickly!!
That's what I was told a good while back... that boxers get their tails docked because their rear goes so crazy... they hit it on everything and some times it can cause SERIOUS injury. I know that's not really the true reason for it... but it sure seems to be a good one! LOL
Good... I know some people think it cruel but I think it's fine. I mean I SWEAR... if Odin had a tail he would have broke it months ago!!! That wiggle butt just goes like 80 mph and just wouldn't be safe! LOL For him or ME... or my home! LMAO
I didn't think there was an age limit... it's just done when they are babies because it's easier and heals faster... less painful... and they can't mess with it. Just like circumcision on baby boys. It can be done as an adult but is EXTREMELY rare along with PAINFUL and is a much bigger ordeal!!! LOL
Though I'm sure you wouldn't want it done when your dog is like 10 yrs old or something. I think once they get to a certain size or age it's considered amputation too. Which is pretty much what it is when little... just a faster process... okay... I'll shut up now. lol
