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 love to chew bones and chase anything small and furry.  I go nuts when I think I am going bye-bye.  I just can't wait to get out and see everything.  My momma says she wishes she had a sled to hitch me too cause she would save gas money going to work.  If I get outside the fence with no leash I just put my nose to the ground and run forever!.  Whooooohoooooo!  I am good door draft stopper.  I lay right against the door cause I love the cool air that creeps in.  Momma wishes she could sell all the hair I shed.  She says we'd be rich.  I have two younger sisters and boy are they a pain in the backside.  They always want to try and kiss me and they'll even steal my bones if I don't hide them good.  I keep sticking them in momma's purse but she keeps taking them out.
