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’.

You came into ours lives to relieve a heartache when we lost our bud Walker and you took us into your heart.  Yes, 8.5 years doesn't seem long, but it was your lifetime and I think you knew we loved to share it.

Today was your last day with us, but I know you're going to a much better place, no pain or suffering just sunshine and all the joy you could ever want.  Please know we did what we thought was best for you.  Lord knows we didn't want you to go, but someone with a higher needed you.  You stole our hearts with the impish cock of your head an those pretty green eyes. 

Tell Walker, when you see him, he was our BUD, but you will always and forever be our GIRLFRIEND.  Give everyone hugs and licks. Thanks for letting us share your life and we'll miss your warm body and dreaming in bed from the squirrel you were chasing.  Until we meet again.............
