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’.

Likes:
Suntanning. I should be living in Mexico!
Dislikes: Anyone attempting to touch
my toes. I will run and hide at the
site of nail clippers.
Most embarrassing moments: While going
for a boat ride with my owners I
noticed something moving at the back. I kept barking to tell them that

there was something there, but they kept laughing at me telling me it
was
just the boat motor. How was I to know!
Favourite Toy: I love taking any toy
that my sister Dollar
has and chew a
little hole in it to pull all the stuffing out.

best friend is Dollar
