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’.

Kukang was given to us by a friend. The first time we saw her she was so ugly and thin, she looks like a stray kitten and she was eating dry leaves. I said to we go again...another unwanted pup. At night, I was surprised that she did not make any fuss at all...she slept the whole night and she releived herself on the soil at the backyard. In the morning she licked my feet and that was it!!! We bonded!!!!

She had short double coat and it was so white that some people thought that she may have Labrador mixed in her genes. She was so affectionate and very intelligent, she sometimes has this tendency to go up the hierarchy ha ha!!!!

We will miss her so much!!!!
