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’.

Maggie was rescued from a bad home when she was a young puppy and cme to my house when her old owners couldn't keep her anymore. We fell in love instantly. My girlfriend and I take her for long walks in the nearby farm fields everyday, as well as our retired neighbor when we are at work. Everyone in the neighborhood loves her. She enjoys playing with our nephews, age 18 mos and 3 yrs. Maggie loves being around them because they always have messy-hands and leftovers from lunch on their face for her to lick off. Her favorite past-time is darting into the cornfields to chase out all the cats, she can't help it. She loves her dog bed pictured here, but ends up between us in bad every night.
