What It Is

Degloving is when the skin is pulled off the underlying tissue.

Causes

This can happen easily to tails at the tip when trapped between a door, fence or when pulled by another animal.

Symptoms

The underlying tissue, tendons, muscles and bone are exposed.


What To Do

These wounds are painful and at risk for infection. This is considered to be an emergency and you should see a vet as soon as possible. Most times, the exposed area is amputated.
