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’.

This is one crazy dog! Her nickname that everyone actually calls her by now is "beans" which was originally Jumping Bean because she never sits still! She is all over the place all the time and never quits. She is entertaining to say the least and never seems to amaze us with the odd things she does. Her likes are Rudy, Nicky and Sasha [our other dogs], treats, hidding under blankets, pillows, towels, in laundry baskets, in peoples sweaters, following her mommy around the house like a shadow, and pretending to be a doberman and guarding the house. Her dislikes are strangers, people touching her mommy, the cold, the outdoors and pop cause she had to be nosy  and try and drink it then gave us a dirty look like we forced her to drink this nasty stuff lol. Overall she is very entertaining and can be sweet when she isn't being sneaky like a little racoon.
