My little girl Rozalia has just had 4 beautiful pups which are now 5 days old. Today i have noticed that one of them. The smallest and last to be born little boy has a funny tail. It is fatter than the other 4's and is not straight at the end but tends to kind of hook to the right a bit. When running my fingers Gently over it the pup does not seem to be in pain. Anyone know the cause of this? Will it straighten out naturally or should i be calling my vet?

I'd call my vet and take the baby over. Probably nothing, but nice to know. Could be a birth defect that will straighten, but maybe something.

It is a fairly common spinal abnormality. As far as I know, it is pretty random and shouldn't affect his ability to have a happy life as a pet. I agree he should be seen by a vet just to make sure he doesn't have any other spinal problems, ones that could affect his life. I wouldn't be too worried about it overall.
