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’.

Buddy is our alterain Yorkie and is 5 years old!  He goes everywhere we go and the terrain doesn't much matter.  His favorite spot is in our living room window and is there all day unless I move.
He hates Cats, rats and squirrels!
He gets up in the morning, goes out to do his thing and then waits for me to get the kids lunches ready and looks for his morning treat.
If I make a move towards the bathroom, he is there looking to see if he is going with us.
He is such a good dog but doesn't like people around the vehicle I am in and will let them know.   If you didn't see him first, you would think he was pitbull!
He keeps up with me for an hour walk in the mornings but tends to bring the outside into the house, leaves etc.
Buddy sleeps with my husband and I every night.  Yes, he is spoiled!!!!
