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’.

Hi my name is Sheba.  I love to run around and sleep.  My favourite thing to do is go for walks and eat coookies.  My favourite lounging spot is right beside mommy.  I also like to annoy my kitty friends by eating their food.  I think my cherished moment was when moomy brought me home.  I think my most embarrising moment was when it was the middle of winter and i stuck my nose to a pole.  My best friend Kelsey always used to nurdle me but now I miss  that because hes up in Rainbow Bridge.  When I was younger I used to pull mommy in a wagon.  I also used to sleep with daddy in the bed without him knowing.
