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 Gryphon. I'm a former SPCA dog. When my mom found me, I was four months old and she was my THIRD home! My first home abandoned my mom and us puppies. My second owners brought me back because they said i was aggressive and bit. Ignorant people. I was just teething. But all for the best 'cause I got a much better home. Now I live with mom and her roommate, by best friend Boo the cat and a few fish. Mom calls me a goof all the time. I love chasing bubbles, tennis balls and when she not looking I chase Boo (don't worry, he thinks it's fun too!). I love singing along with ambulances and eating flies. I have bad food allergies and have to eat special food. It tastes like cardboard but mom's working on finding out exactly what I'm allergic to. Anyways better go!
