Hello, I looked over the question you sent.
This is a case that requires an appointment with a veterinarian.
Your dog's tail requires surgical intervention as well as the administration of antibiotics. There is a high risk of bacterial infection on the wound, so he will require wound debridement and, if necessary, suture with a skin flap. So please take him to the veterinary clinic as soon as possible.
Please do not hesitate to ask any further questions you may have. Thank you.

(The consultation type you select only determines whether or not your pet requires medical attention. If you require a detailed consultation, please ask questions without urgent mode.)
