Should You Worry If Your Dog Chases His Tail?

Watching a dog chase his tail can be very amusing, but it can be startling too. Doesn’t your dog know he’s chasing his own tail? You wouldn’t think that would be very fun! When should you worry about this interesting behavior?

Many dogs chase their tail because they’re bored. If your dog doesn’t chase his tail very often, or if stops chasing his tail for the evening after you’ve taken him for a walk, everything is probably okay.

If your dog chases his tail for long periods of time during the day, or if he chases his tail regardless of how much exercise he gets, he could have a problem. Your dog could be struggling with anxiety, which requires attention from your local veterinarian Happy Valley, OR. Give them a call, schedule an appointment, and you can get to the root of why your dog is chasing his tail.
