Why is my dog biting off the hair on his tail?

He seems to have bitten off a patch of hair on the top of his tail. Is this some thing to worry about?

Put this stuff on its for puppies and dogsand it makes things taste better so he wont chew on them

Ok it could be a couple of things it could be fleas which u gotta get a prevention for because the over the counter stuff doesn't work it could be dry skin which means when u wash him to use hypo or oatmeal shampoo it could be allergies which ud have to take to the vet to make sure its not food related or u might accidently kill ur dog if its to the base of the tail he could have an anal problem which is the vet again if its a longer haired dog it could be a matt because dogs rip them out when they get too bad and pull at there skin the best bet would be take him to the vet to make sure its not health related if he is just doing it just cause they have this stuff to make it taste gross called bitter apple and it should work but 8 times out of 10 there is a reason so id get it checked

There are virtually limitless possibilities as to what it could be.

What is known for a fact is that there is something on his tail that is bothering him. And regardless of what it is, you should bring it into a vet for an exam.

It could be anything from fleas or ticks to some sort of skin issue.

Its most likely because of fleas. My dog did the same thing and I took him to the vet and the vet said it was fleas so i gave my dog flea medicine. Now to prevent it i spray my dog with Frontline Spary.

May be fleas or allergies. You should take him to the vet for an exam.
