Tail affection is a common occurrence in Indian domestic livestock. A common perception is that tail affection are prone to various affections like necrosis, gangrene and wounds, and if not treated, lead to the animal's death. Most of these affections do not respond to routine medical management and demand amputation of the tail. Here we conducted a surgical amputation of the tail to cure the affections in buffaloes and cows' between the ages of 4 to 6 years old. After the surgical intervention, the tail necrosis, gangrene, and wound of the infected animals were successfully managed and followed by conservative therapy. The clinical case studies concluded that the tail affections healed without complications with the surgical and medicinal approach.
