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’.

Hello everyone,
My name is Finnigan. I am a four month old miniature schnauzer who is VERY loved! My Mommy and Daddy tell me how handsome I am all the time and they think I'm a Super Dog. I'm only a baby and all ready I know how to Sit, Stay, Come, Fetch, Give Kisses, Paw, Other Paw, Give Five, and much more. I don't mean to be so vain :) I have a very gentle personality and I am wonderful with other animals and children. I do nip a little but that's because I am still teething. I also try to kill the air from the bolw dryer when it attacks my face. I am house trained but I spring a leak here and there when I get really excited (like when my Mommy comes home!). I have a kitty for a sister and I love her very much but I can't figure out why she won't play with me. Mommy is teaching me to be more gentle with her because she can get pretty scared. I'm learning a lot from her (how to swipe things with my paws and to nibble at my food instead of eating it all at once) but Mommy thinks I have an identity problem becuase I act like a cat! Sometimes my cries even sound like Meows! My favorite things to do are going for walks (Everyone in my apartment building treats me like a celebrity and I have my own fan club-the children of the building-that follows me wherever I go!), travelling to new places, jumping up on Mommy (She tells me that when I start school next week, I'll learn not to jump up anymore - I don't know if I like that idea!), and sneaking Daddy's socks out of his drawer when he's not looking. Well, thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little on my web page. I'll have my Mommy update it as I grow up and she learns more about me.

Puppy Kisses all Over,
