Chasing your dog's tail is a classic dog behavior that's fun to watch, especially when he's still a playful puppy. However, according to SSPDaily, sometimes this behavior is associated with health problems.

According to experts, dogs, especially at an early age, cannot always identify their tail as part of their own body. It's just a playful act that doesn't have much meaning. However, there are times when this behavior should not be taken lightly because of possible medical problems.

So, how do you know when to sound the alarm? If your dog is biting his tail excessively, to the point of bleeding or injury, it's important to take action.

It should be noted that common causes include the presence of parasites. If they are not removed in time, the dog will bite itself.

Also, animals, like humans, can exhibit compulsive behavior. In order to suppress the nervous state, the dog begins to "express" its aggression through the tail.

Seek help from a trusted veterinarian or a professional dog trainer. After consulting with experts, you will be able to determine the root cause of this behavior and take the necessary measures to eliminate it. Regardless of whether medication or behavior modification is required, experts will help you accurately diagnose the problem and assist your pet.
