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’.

Sahsa is my second golden and she has a wonderful temperment.  She the complete oppostie to Copper and she shows her affection by laying with you snuggling, or just trying to play fight.  Her bark is no where near as loud as Copper's but is very very deep.  She doesn't make as much noise as Copper but instead of bashing you she will sit down infront of you and wait for you to pet her.  She also has a huge bed of her own and loves it on occassion she will come and sleep with me but she usually will just come up in the morning and sit and stare at me until I wake up.  Sasha loves eating rocks and just had major surger to remove one that was to big to pass.  I was there with her during surgery and spent most of night with her at the hospital.  She is doing great now and the sutures are removed on Monday.  I love both of my goldens the same and they will both be getting lots of presents this year.
