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 brought velcro home as a bottle fed kitten who had lost his mom.Soon i had to find homes for all the cats..however Velcro returned to me as the owners had to find living arrangements for the winter..Oh how I loved that cat he followed me around and his favorite place was my bed. what a loving cat he was so sweet and special. well one day he hada cold and his nose was runni so i took him to the vet. they took some test and came back and said he was criticial and had feline lukemia and that he was suffering and would never recover the best would be to put him to sleep. i was devastated but i wanted him to not be in any pain,, so as they put him to sleep i cried for the life he had that came to a end so soon i looked in to his eyes and stroked him and just cried for him for the pain he felt for i felt that pain too.. my dear cat i know that i must say goodbye and go on.. you are no longer suffering and are in a better place.. you are not forgotten and you will never be replaced.. you have a place in my heart that misses you so very much.. you were a part of me and i ache when i think about you.. one thing a cats love is unconditional they love you back so much. to my loving velcro i love you forever and miss you much i am glad i had the time to have you in my life however short it was you brought me joy and i thank you for that
