|Hershey has an Akita tail (she's an Akita mix) that curls up. I noticed this morning that she's holding it down and straight. She's not tucking it like she's scared or anything like that, just holding it straight down.
About 6 years ago, she was doing this and, being a new mommy, I panicked thinking it was something horribly wrong. But, I took her in and it was her anal glands. The vet expressed them and all was good. We haven't had to have them expressed since then.
She's at daycare today and the vet is going to take a look at her. Do you think it's probably the anal glads or is there something else to look at? There is a place a few inches from the base of her tail where it looks like her hair is rougher and thinner than the rest of it. It almost makes a "band" around her tail. Anyone have a clue on that?
