Limber tail syndrome

This happened to our Jack . It's not uncommon after swimming or overexertion. You should bring your Jack to the vet to make sure. Our vet did an x-ray to make sure the tail wasn't fractured. He also did blood work which showed extra creatine. Our vet told us to use a warm compress and anti-inflammatory drugs. It took a day or two and then our Jack was healed.
