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’.

Honey, we loved you more than you knew.  Your laid back attitude made us smile every day.  I remember the time when you were just a baby. You fell in a cardboard box, we couldn't find you for hours...but we did and you were so happy.  I remeber the night you discovered that fire hurts.  You tried to smell the candle and burnt off your whiskers.  You and I sat in the dark for the rest of the night.  I remember you little face when mom bathed you.  You grumpy guy.  I remember the time Jenna cut off all your whiskers.  You looked so funny, you made me smile.  I remember the day I brought you home, I kept thinking how handsome you were and how lucky we were to have each other.  You made everyone around you smile.  I am so sorry we couldn't be with you yesterday, you must have been so scared.  I am so sorry you got sick...if we had only known.  Always remember that we love you so, so much.  We will always miss you.


Forever in our Hearts,


Ashley, Jenna, Janet, Steve, Shaun and Bob
