Broken tail

Is my puppy's tail broken?

Once my sister accidentally closed the door when puppy was jumping out of the car. He was 12 weeks. Now he is 17 weeks, his tail looks weird.

Is it broken or some weird GSD growth thing.

The only way for anyone to tell that is if you take him to the vet and have an xray done.

It doesn't look good always vet especially the way it looks what happens when you try to touch it

Thanks my vet didn't comment on the tail during last visit. I will bring it up in next visit. Touching doesn't bother him.

He does wag his tail lightly. But touching doesn't do anything.

I can't help because I haven't dealt with that issue, yet. Tails can be a real pain when they have damage to the end, because they keep breaking open. I don't know what they might do for a broken tail. Surgery? wrapping it with vet-wrap? I would definitely take him to the vet and get it x-rayed to see what you are working with, and then you might want to go to an ortho-vet.

Idk what they would do either but it might not be broken could be like a dislocation imagine having a dislocated finger and not going to the doctor right away I would have had him there right away just because I have never had this happen before and would want to know what it was and how to fix it and make sure everything is ok and not in pain not insinuating anything just the way I am I come across something I don't know about it I research and go to people who do

A lot of puppies are drama-queens, but GSDs, even puppies often have a huge pain tolerance. Instinctively, they are more likely to show aggression when in pain than crying or displaying typical symptoms of pain. We just have to keep this in mind and always err on the side of doing too much, vet-wise, than not enough.
