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’.

Tucker is a very friendly Yellow Lab.  He was one year old on June 18, 2004.  Tucker is very playful and friendly.   He is well socialized with other dogs.  His favorite things to do are to be cuddly and chew on his toys or a rawhide bone.  He is very lovable.  He will eat just about anything (including his vegetables!)  He thinks he is a little dog still and likes to sit on peoples lap (even though he weighs almost 80lbs)..  He loves kids and kids love him.
