    I posted the other day about my frizzle who was attacked by our Dachshund last week. We have taken her to the vet, she has been staying inside and takes her meds very well. My concern now is that I do not notice her lifting her tail feathers (whats left of them) anymore. I am certain that she was in quite a bit of pain when she was injured and while waiting for the meds to take effect. If she is no longer able to raise her tail will cause any problems when she is due to lay (any time now).

    I hate to say this, but only time will tell. Maybe, once she recovers fully, she will be able to move her tail again.....So hard to wait and see.....
