Limp tail syndrome

If you google search limp tail syndrome in English setter you can see a picture of how tail looks crooked. I will ask vet about prednisone, I had previously used rimaydl for inflammation

So this is what your setter's tail looks like?  Definitely a crook in that one, although all the others listed showed no crook. What does the tail feel like as you palpate through the crook area? Interesting.

It feels normal. No signs of a break. Studies show 16 percent of dogs never recover. The owner of the dog in this picture is a vet that I have spoken to. This is such a rare case I am trying anything that might work

I think I would have tried splinting it, even though there is no fracture. That is immobilize it in a straight position for at least 4 weeks. This example in the photo was a fracture. The break was mid vertebral segment and would not stabilize in an anatomical position, short of surgical internal interference, thus it healed with a slight kink not really noticeable visually.
