As long as they are not messing with it, they won't need e-collars yet.

You may be facing a tail amputation with the one, they will amputate back to healthy tissue and stitch it up. Tell your vet not to shave the tail. I have found shaving for neuters or tail amputations make gliders more prone to going after the surgery site.

Is there anything wrapped around the toe that you can see? or is it just red?
