Chasing That Tail

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

DOG CHASINGWhat are the reasons for your dog’s repetitive behavior? It’s not uncommon for your puppy to chase it’s tail but tail chasing or tail licking should not consume a large portion of your dogs time. Valarie Tines is an Animal Behaviorist from Fort Worth, Texas. She says that this can be the one behavior problem that is most likely related to pain or neuropothy or even just mild itchiness. She also says that if this is not the true underlying cause, there’s a good chance that there’s probably an underlying neurophysiological disfunction that’s causing the problem. If you see him licking or chasing his tail and you cannot stop him, ask your vet to examine him. If no underlying injuries or allergies can be found, anti anxiety pet medication may be prescribed.
