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’.

My name is Dozer. My new mom and dad brought me to my new house a couple days before Christmas. What a great Christmas present! I love to sleep, eat, play with my squeeky ball, wrestle with my new sister, Shelby, and run in the field by my new house. I'm a very curious little boy. I always have to know whats going on. My new parents laugh at me alot, but they tell me its because I'm so cute. I'm generally a very happy puppy, but I don't like it when my parents leave me home alone!
