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’.

Freddy,


You were what got me over my fear of cats. You were the only cat that I've ever been close to. I loved you like you were my own pet. I wish I could have said goodbye to you. I miss you so much. It kills me to know that I'll never get to pet you again, listen to your adorable meow, and watch you go crazy at the sight of catnip. I read the comics I made of you and looked at the many photos of you I took. Everyone told me to save my film but I'm glad I didn't listen. In fact, I have a roll of film entirely of you that I need to get developed!  I love you very much, and I know your watching me from Heaven.


I love you so much,


Vanessa
