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’.

Bear I got u from a litter of puppies & the only reason I picked u out was because u had 4 white paws but when u grew up they disappered....But u turned out to be one of the best dogs I have ever had.  U would protect me from nething or neone.  Everyone thought u were so mean but u were such a sweetheart.  U & Sparkie became fast friendz & could never be seperated.  When we moved to WV, u had to stay tied up because everyone was scared of u.  I knoe somethings r meant to happen but I don't knoe y u had to go after all the happened to u & u survived it & then u jus so sick & we didn't knoe what was wrong.  I have pictures of u all over my room & u made such a big impact on me.  I will never forget u.  I hope u r having fun where u r cuz u r with Sissy, Sparkie, & Kri again.  There will never be another u because u were jus here long enough to teach me some of lifes hard lessons & leave me.  When u died it broke my heart to see u go.  I knoe I will see u again....u were so special to me & I hope tha u knoe tha.  I love & miss u so much Bear Bear...I hope u knoe tha.
