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 really wish that he could be here today, and see another pretty day. But, since he can't I will say this, I'll LOVE him always in heat, and bliss. I know that he is looking down, and does not want me to wear a frown.  And, if I try not to sin, then I know I will see him again. The last thing that I want to say is, "Dont forget me.", and you will have a gift. You'll see. I know you are waiting for me in heaven, Just be patient. Instead of two years you have been gone it seems like seven. Some things have changed, like weight and height, but when I get there promise not to bite. On that day I tried not to cry, I still don't know the reason why. I guess I will just have to wait, but till that day I can promise on my day I won't be late.
