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 am the Head
of the Household. My human depends on me to take care of everyone, furry
and other humans.
I love her,
her body lotion and her perfume. My wife Princesa is my favourite furry
partner but I cannot get over Oso Labrador having to live with us.
His presence is not appreciated. Mom really makes it a point of taking
care of our breakfast and I do know it's a lot of work for her,
after all we are 8 adult dogs, 4 puppies, two big parrots, rescued squirrels,
canaries, iguanas and one sick lovebird!
I really hate
it when we get served after the birds and the iguanas - we should always
be first! I love it when my aunts and uncles come to visit but hate it
when they send me out to the garden to make sure the others don't make
noise! I wish they would realise I HAVE TO BE PRESENT to give my expert
opinion.
I
guess my most cherised moment was last December when my wife Princesa
was saved by a wonderful vet .
She got very ill and I really suffered until MOM found doc Viviana and
she saved her!
