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’.

Jersey, a pure bread Chocolate Labrador, was born in Kapuskasing, ON. on April 2nd 2003.
She has 3 brothers and 5 sisters. Jersey likes to play, play, play, play and play some more.
She is very affectionate with its master but is sometimes rough with the master's wife. But
all and all, she is a beautiful, playful and likeable dog. If she is left alone for too long she reminds us
by chewing on a valuable possession of mine. She likes children but right now, children are too light
to even consider playing with her because I see bodies fly all over the place. Lately she has been reminding me to build her a house with a
basement because every time I come back from work she has dug a 3 feet wide X 2 feet deep hole at
the entrance of the garage(side door). Hopefully her energy level will drop soon so we all need
to relax a bit.

I dont regret getting Jersey one bit, I just need a little time & patience.
