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’.

Netta is very vocal and loves to talk (not bark) but talk in growling higher tone voice.  She was we believe, picked up by a car in the Blue Mountains area just west of Collingwood near Ravenna the end of May, during a lightening storm.
She would be 10 yrs old now and is sadly missed, we believe she may be in the kitchener/stratford area (Mitchell, Ontario).  If you have any information on our dog, please contact us via email at fairbanks@telus.net or me_kylar@hotmail.com
