Dog Tail Biting
by: maureenAnonymous

My Roxie was biting her tail the same way, it was very raw looking, I saturated cotton balls with hydrogen peroxide and dabbed her tail several times a day, in a matter of a few days it cleared up completely. The hair grew back and you would never know there ever was a problem. I use the same remedy for any red blotches that appear on their (I have 3 other JRT's) bellies or any where on their bodies. Good Luck!
