Betty's Tail is down all the time now.
I was just wondering why for the past year or two, our JRT's tail is no longer up in the air when she walks. It used to be sticking up all the time. Now it goes down. It is only about 2-3 inches long and has never had any hair on it since we got her. She also has some scarring on her hip as though she had been injured somehow before we got her. She is quite old. We don't know exactly how old because we got her from a rescue about 7 years ago. The vet thought she was over 10 at that time. We do know she has some kidney failure going on and skin allergies which have caused some hair loss in recent years. I believe she is deaf although others in the family disagree. She does lift the tail when she does her business. There doesn't seem to be any pain there. Any thoughts? Thanks!
