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’.

Hey, my Name is Triffin- Aqua, Triffin for short. I am a very good cat, I love to be pet, I am friendly and do not bite or scratch! I like going outside and roaming, I have lots of other friends. my favorite kind of toys are boucny balls! I love jumping up and catching them. I hate water! Absolutly hate it! I don't like fish either! I love chicken and Ice Cream though(I'm not supposed to eat Ice cream but sometimes they let me have a lick) my most embarrassing moment had to be when I fell of my Owners bed..It scared me. I sleep with my owners and in the towel basket everynight. They love me. I hate the vet, i'v had bad experiences there. Well thats all about me!!..


 After thought--


   Triffin was the best cat i could ever ask for. He was so smart and was such a people cat, he loved to be held and pet. Last week, he was hit by a car and was killed. He never went on the main road, the person just left him there and I happened to find him. I was and still am devestated about it and i miss him very much. He was my life and heart. :(..I hope he didnt suffer and i wish people had more respect for animals! becasue in most cases the animal that they just hit belongs to someone!
