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’.

Well, I must
admit I'm the smallest in size - but everyone bows in my presence - or
else!
I will also admit Mom get angry with me a lot, but she can't refuse me
a hug and kisses. I sleep beside her every night.
I
love having skimmed milk for breakfast and that soupy veggie & liver
stew for lunch.
I also LOVE macaroni and cheese AND getting
my coat brushed EVERY day.
I can't stand
Grushenko, he's so spoiled and looks like a teddy bear instead of a dog
and I make him see this -
I guess that's why MOM gets so upset with me. I really try, I really do
try to behave well, but... I'm always the first one to notice if anything
is wrong anywhere.

Mom always takes me to town because I'm a good traveller on buses - I
even get my own seat!
