Happy Tail Syndrome occurs when happy dog tail wagging causes dog tail injury. Strong breeds are at higher risk of getting dog tail bleeding because they wag harder. It's very difficult to get the tail injury healedbecause of dogs biting the tail until it bleeds even more, or licking at it, and their chewing off the bandages. In addition most bandages fall off when dogs run, roll, play, and wag. To make things worse dogs may heal only to once again wag hard against something hard like a wall and have the Happy Tail Syndrome re-occur. When the injury drips blood non-stop the veterinarian will advise "tail amputation, dog lives", and then he/she may mention that dog tail amputation costs a lot.
