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 heart and soul went with you

As you crossed that great divide

You did not go alone

You had my Henry at your side

And although my heart is breaking

In every possible way

At Heaven's Gate you're waiting

Til I we meet again some day

In memory of my lovely lass Sadie and Henry my cat of 19 years

With utter love




Rest in Peace my darlings Sadie and Henry my cat of nineteen years.

Both entered Heaven's Gates together on February 1st, 2005
