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’.

I was was rescued by Janet, she is the best!
My previous owners dropped me off at the vet and never came back.....
I landed up in a kennel in Ontario. Thats where I met Janet.
She did not even know what I looked like but when she found out my name was Scooby Doo (her favorite cartoon when she was a kid) she decided over the phone that she wanted me! Life is great!
I had a hard time adjusting to my new surroundings so Janet decided to get me a friend to keep me company when she was not home. Her name is Shaggy, thats her to my left. We have lots of fun together. I love going for car rides, I just wish Janet would let me drive once and while!
