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’.

Coco was my favorite dog, even if I had three. She spent every day and night with me for four months. Coco was so precious. She was fiesty but sweet. She understood when I said "kisses". She always came to me when I called or waited if I said to wait. She was a big beautiful ball of life. Coco jumped high. As soon as she got old enough, she could jump out of our windows. She had a favorite spot on the old couch,  that she would crawl into and sleep. Coco fought parvo for five days. She waited for me to get home from a test the day that she died. Her papa took care of her. He stayed up the entire night before she died. We tried our best. I am still having a hard time understanding God's plan, because Coco was just a baby. I don't think that babies should ever die. Coco.. I burried her today and put a rock on her grave. My sweet angel.. I feel like she is here with me in spirit. The other dogs keep sniffing around your room, laying on your couch and crying. Coco died on her favorite couch. I will forever miss you my sweet angel. This pain runs so deep in my chest. I can not explain it. I will forever love you... until we meet again.
