Pet Tip

Limber tail in dogs – Pet tip 140

Limber Tail Syndrome (AKA cold tail, dead tail, broken wag) is quite common among some breeds of hunting dogs, such as Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Pointers, Setters, and Beagles. It is a condition in which the tail becomes limp and sometimes painful after exertion, particularly during inclement weather, swimming, or in an under-conditioned dog. It is a condition well-known to hunting dog owners and trainers, but not commonly seen by veterinarians. The syndrome is characterized by the swelling of the muscles at the base of the tail (the wagging muscles, which are also used heavily during swimming when the tail may serve as a rudder). These muscles are bound to the tail by a tight ring of connective tissue. As the muscles swell and expand, the connective tissue begins to serve as a tourniquet – cutting off normal blood flow.

When increased pressure within a confined space results in reduced blood flow, it is known as a ‘compartment syndrome’.

My name is Cinnamon Ice but everyone calls me Cindy. I also come from a PMU farm in Manitoba just like my half sister Gypsy. We have the same Daddy. I look just like my Daddy and my sister looks like her Mom. I live in Alberta now. I like to be groomed and love to have attention poured on me. I am not as frisky as my sister but I can really run when I want to. I have to be kept clean because my coat is mostly white so I get dirty real easy. I have one more year to grow before I get to go riding and I can show Gypsy a thing or two about how fast I can go.
