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 love to play in my backyard with Mom & Dad, they throw the ball around so I can fetch it back. I go for walks with Mom sometimes Dad takes me in the morning. I love to go to the pet store to visit with the other dogs and cats, I really like the little kids best of all Mom says I behave and don't jump up on them. I get excited when other people are around me I want to play with them and have them pet me. I love to fetch my Teddy Bear that I have had since I was a puppy, Mom takes good care and washes it sometimes.My favourite treat is a pig's ear, mom cuts it in half so I don't eat it all at once, but I love all kinds of food. I was my Mom's surprise Christmas present 2 years ago, Dad drove her to my parents house to pick me up. We had to stop at the Pet store to buy me a bed (cage) and some food.  All the people at the store wanted to pet me cause I was so tiny (6 wks) with big long Bassett ears!  Hope you like my picture and will vote for me, Please!!
