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’.

Angie likes to chew anything, so far she has chewed all the couch cushons, at least 5 pairs of sleepers, pillow cases, blanket, and lots of important papers like bills.
Her favorite games are tug of war and catch the rubber ball.
Not like Rotti's fearless reputation, she is a big chicken, afraid of cats, big noises, shy with people, hardly barks...But She loves apples, nectarine, peaches, and pineapple, but she doesn't like orange...everytime when I ask " Are you hungry?" she always twists her head.
She brought us so much joy and new meaning of life.
I love Angie so much.
