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’.

My name is Keena Marie Cute As Can Be! I'm a bad pooch who likes to cause trouble, well at least when I'm not laying in bed until noon or soaking up the sun out on my porch. I think it's funny to bark by the door so mommy and daddy think I have to pee, then I start chasing squirrels and chipmunks instead. I never catch them but I will as soon as I master the art of tree climbing. Even though I like to keep them on their toes, I love my mommmy and daddy!!
