My dog just dislocated his tail this morning and I called the vet and they told me that either they could put him on meds for that pain or amputate it. So I called my chiropractor [who usually only words on ppl] said that he just worked on a dog earlier this week and once he had to adjust a horse.

Nothing, as long as your dog is a pet it really makes no difference, a show dog should have a curly tail but it is only for looks.

How can you stop dog biting out tail?

If your dog won't stop biting its tail, you can try a few different things. First, examine the tail to see if there is something wrong with it, such as a flea bite or other irritant/injury, that could possibly be causing your dog to bite the area. If there is a flea bite, treat your dog and home for fleas, including a flea prevention product. Most dogs will stop biting at fleas at this point, however some dogs are allergic to fleas and continue to itch or bite the area. Two of my dogs have flea allergy dermaitis and I have had success using a hydocortisone spray from petco w/ aloe vera. If your dog's tail is not injured aside from the dog's biting, then it is a behavioral problem. Make sure your dog gets at least 30-45 minutes of walking and 15-30 minutes of playtime each day. Then he ought to be too tired to bite his tail. If he still bites his tail, sit in front of him with a really yummy treat and dangle it in the air til he stops biting his tail. Then give him a piece of the treat. It should be yummy enough that he doesn't go back to biting his tail but instead fixates on you. Praise him and treat him for not biting his tail and if possible teach him an accepted behavior such as sit or down. then when he is biting his tail, get the treat and ask for the new accepted behavior i. e. Sit. Do this 1-2 times every day, for 5 min, for a least 21 days. Eventually, you won't need the treat and he will stop biting and just sit. Good luck!

What are symptoms of dislocated hip in dog?

If you think that the hip is dislocated, then the dog needs to be at the vet. Would you want to be laying around with YOUR hip dislocated? If the leg is not bothering him with applied pressure, the chances are slim that it's dislocated. Unless it's a very slight dislocation or it's just not seated right. If my dog had been limping for a day, waiting another day would not be an option. Dogs limp because they are in pain - not for fun. My dog would be at an emergency vet getting pain meds and a diagnosis.

Can a dog wag its tail without the tail in turn wagging the dog?

It can, but this is more likely when the dog is sitting or lying down. When a dog is standing and wagging its tail, it's the momentum of the tail wagging that spreads to the rest of the dog's body and causes the rest of the dog to wag too.
