Little Rolo is a 7-year-old dachshund who proved so excited to see his family at home during the Coronavirus quarantine that his tail "stopped working for excessively wagging his tail". That's right, the dachshund was so excited to spend time with his family that he literally sprained his tail.
A common injury
Rolo strained the ligaments and tendons too much between the tail and the spine. He has been given an anti-inflammatory injection in the tail and will have to take painkillers every day for a week. After only 48 hours, his condition has already improved.
While Rolo still can't raise his tail, he can wag his tail again. “I didn't expect this to happen. For those who ask, he is currently on pain relievers and the vet said he should get well within a week, this is the second day for him. She is super happy and now there is movement of the tail from one side to the other, but it is difficult to lift it in the air, "said Emma.
Many comments on the post went viral have made it clear that the injury is quite common for "happy" dogs. Other owners shared the stories of their pets suffering from "happy tail syndrome". One of them wrote: “It happened to my puppy on a family trip. He played so intensely, so fully that he had happy tail syndrome. It broke my heart to see him wag his tail. " Luckily, Rolo fans can now follow his recovery on Instagram by following his official account, "Rolo the hot dog".
