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’.

My name is Keebler - what a silly name for me. You can call me "Kee". I was born at Guide Dogs For The Blind, Inc. located near San Francisco, California. I was trained to be a Guide Dog, but at 5 I'm now going blind myself from Pannus. Well, I'm not too happy about it, but I keep busy.
I like to play catch, and travel. I have been all over the state of California, and stayed in Las Vegas once when my lady was at a convention there. I like all that, but my favorite thing in the whole world in my big blue ball. I don't like to leave home without it.
I love ice cream. Yum!
