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’.

Derek, You were the most beloved cat I have ever had......I still think of you to this day and remember the times we had. I remember crying about you for days after your death...but I knew you had gone to a better place. I will love you forever and always, and I will never forget the way you would run to me whenever I cried, you always cared. Gosh, and the way I treated you....well I was very young, I'm sure you understand. Even so I would like to apologize for the things I did. You will be with me forever I know, and I will never forget you. May you forever have the happiness that I felt when I had you. I will love you until my dying day........
