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’.

Happy was my dog Sissy's puppy & she went to my aunt & she was a good dog & it has upset everyone so much tha she is gone now & I knoe tha she is with her Brothers & her mommy.  I knoe tha they r all together again.  I hope she tells Kri & Sissy tha I miss them & I still love them more then nething.  Max misses her.  My Aunt Pokie misses her more then nething in this world because there will never be another dog like her.  After her mommy passed away she reminded me of her so much.  She was a good lil dog....Loud at times...lol...But none the less a good lil dog.  She is dearly missed by her family.  I knoe the her, Kri, Sissy, Poocie, & Dollar r all across The Rainbow Bridge playing together again.  We miss & love u Happy.  Aunt Pokie talks about u everyday & she misses u so much.  I miss u to but noone will miss u like Aunt Pokie.  u were her lil gurl & she will never replace u.  I knoe ur pain is gone & u r happy & healthy now.  She loves u more then nething in this world.  She loves & misses u Happy.
