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’.

Hi! My name is Hudson. I'm a little nervous cause this is my first time on the web, but I thought I would give it a shot. I'm actually a Texas boy, but Mom, Dad, and my brother Rebel just moved out here to California. I can't complain. I love the beach! However, my favorite thing to do is eat!!! (but I don't like onions!-Yuck) Also, I like to snuggle with anyone willing! Anyone wanna snuggle? Let's see what else, there's really nothing I don't like.  Oh, there is one thing, large yard equipment gives me the willies. My most embarassing moment must be when I clear the room with my gas! I can't help it sometimes. I'm just a pup and I tend to deflate when I sleep. Thanks for checkin out my page.
Take care,
Hud
