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’.

I love to play with my best friend Tee. I have two favorite toys one is a blue and green ball the otheer is a red rope.I like to sleep late. I have Danielle, Brandon and their daughter Kirsten they take care of me. I love it when Kirsten comes outside and throws my ball. She is 3 and I know I have to be careful with her. I hate our cat Morris. When Danielle comes out to feed me, he always comes to and he walks around the outside of the fence just teasing me. It drives me crazy. I live a good life and I would not change it for nothing.
