Greyhound injuries seem to happen when you least expect it. Lyric is not a busy dog nor hard on her body. We all have been having alot of down time from dog shows and training since Whisper has had her puppies. Well I came home one night and noticed Lyric had broken her tail. How is a mystery since she had sleeping most of the day on the couch.
At least as far as injuries go it is relatively minor. Johnson and Johnson clear tape wrapped several times over the fracture and extending above and below the injury typically "sets" it in a normal position. The tape is replaced only if needed. After several weeks the tape is removed and the tail has healed in a normal position.
