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’.

Harley is a young Chihuahua, full of energy most of the time, but when he gets tired he loves to sleep, and just hates getting up in the morning. Harley is mainly black, but has a white patch on his chest and his left paw is also white. Harley loves his Mommy and Daddy and is very loyal to us. He only seems to like certain animals, but gets along well with our cat, "Samantha". Harley is very curious and anything he can get into, he does, you have to always have an eye on him. He absolutely for some reason has always loved to eat paper, any kind of paper product for a fact, so any paper product must be up off the floor so he can't get it. Harely sleeps with his Mommy and Daddy every night, and loves attention.....Harley is a wonderful pet, and most of the time is a very good boy.
