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 am a wild and crazy pup. I have the best family in the world my mom, 2 big sister, and a big brother. My mom does all my training but when its time to play its my 6 year old big brother to the rescue. I just love to sleep with him and he is the one who feeds me. I hate the cat when my family gives it attention because they are mine, however I sleep with her when we are alone.  My favorite treat is beleive it or not grapes I will do anything for a grape!
My most embarrassing moment was very recent 10/10/05 my boy jake whom I love to death and will protect with my life was carving his pumpkin for halloween and he put his hand inside and started screaming because it was so cold. I thought that the pumpkin was eating him my hackles went up and I was on the attack. I went after the pumpkin and jake laughed at me so hard that he wet his pants when the pumpkin rolled and down the hill after me and I ran away crying.  Nnow when I walk by those sneekie pumpkins I growl at them just to let them know that I'v got my eyes on them. Soif  you come to my house dressed as a pumpkin I'm gona getcha everyone else is safe.
