Thread: post tail-amputation behavior

    Default post tail-amputation behavior

    We had her tail amputation about 3 weeks ago. Pocket and the smell is gone.

    But every once in awhile, i see her twirl on her butt. Before the surgery, she would rock on her bum - now it's a twirl and she doesn't seem very distressed or intense about it - she just does it and then walks off.

    Got a call into the doctor on this.

    Anybody else had experience with this?

    I am guessing it could be a little itchy from healing.
