What is wrong with my 11 yr old Jack Russell's Tail?
Hey everyone... Well, my sweet girl Reggie, who is 11 yrs old this month has been acting very strange. A couple of weeks ago she started holding her tail (docked) to one side, and sort of scooting sideways. She only did it for one day, she was fine for 4 or 5 days and now she has started doing it again. She is a little overweight, and I thought it might be because the fleas have been so bad here in GA, USA this year, and she can't reach back there to scratch or bite (which I have been doing for her - scratching not biting lol). She will still give a try at running but not for long, and sometimes she has a hard time squatting to pee pee. I have seen her back leg(s) shake just a tiny bit. I am just not sure what this could be... It's not a consistent thing, it isn't always 24 hr there, and after she has a bath she feels better. I don't know, I just worry about her and love her sooo much. Any help or suggestions would be helpful. My Reggie appreciates it and so do I.
