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’.

Rosie is a (approx.)  six year old Beagle. My family rescued her from an SPCA near we live. She was found roaming the streets along with her young brother. (Both about three years) Unfortunatly, my parents didn't want two dogs, so we had to leave her brother behind. Now, a older dog, Rosie spends most of her time laying around the house. She can no longer go for walks since she had a near-death experiance with a spinal injury. (And now she's fat) Sometimes I think about how close I came to loosing her and how much she means to me. I love you Rosie, and you mean the world to me, I will never let you go.
