This is Wallace, a 5-month-old sable collie. Wallace’s dad returned home one day to a rather surprising scene: the tip of Wallace's tail had broken off, exposing the bone. Wallace was rushed to the vet, and the vet determined the best situation would be to remove the exposed bone to avoid any future infections.
The tail is actually an extension of your pet’s spine. Truth be told, there are a host of things that can go wrong with your pet’s tail because your pet is frequently moving it. Tail damage can range from a simple pinch, such as when a pet’s tail gets accidentally stepped on or is caught in a closing door, or it can be a very serious issue, involving bleeding or nerve damage. If you see something is wrong with your pet’s tail, it’s really a good idea to take them to the vet for a check up.
Wallace's dad is on a limited income, and he can afford every day care, but didn't have enough money saved for an emergency surgery such as this. He applied to Fur Kids Foundation for assistance, and we were happy to help.
Wallace's tail was fixed, and his father is hoping that he doesn't get himself into any more puppy trouble.
