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’.

Our family loved Zeus, he was an incredible dog.  He made everyone happy and was always a true friend right up until the end.  Zeus made all of us smile, he had a huge head and a great big heart.


I've had dogs all my life, but I've never had a dog like this....I truly, believe he was a once in a life time friend.  The Rottweiler is understated, it's unfortunate that most people don't take the time to get to know this breed...they are strong and compassionate, they love their families and would do anything for them.  Our Zeus, was a gentle soul, he would never have hurt anyone.  Everyone he came into contact with, he greeted with so much excitement, he wanted everyone to be his friend.


We are going to miss our Zeus for a very long time and I know we will never forget him.
