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’.

Companion to Nancy Norris

September 17, 1987 to February 6, 2006

 

In my bad moments I remember that last day…those final hours...how tired you became, so suddenly.

 

In my good moments, I remember the many years we shared…your yappy and happy disposition…your need to be the center of attention at ALL times and I can picture you, sashaying through heaven with your eyes bright and your diamond collar sparkling…my own private star, watching over me until I’m able to join you again.

 

Until then…goodbye my precious girl…my love for you will never end...I will miss you every day of my life...but, I’ll be seeing you.
