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’.

Its me Puppy, im just a lovable older guy.
I have only been around this funny farm now known to me as home for a little over a year, but I am absolutely loving it here. There are so many other kinds of furry creatures out there that  I didnt know exsisted. But I have learnt to love them all ( even the chickens who scared me ALOT at first)  Dont tell the other big tough guys but I adore cats!!!!!  ( shhhht)
I moved here because my old owner was afraid to pass on and I didnt have a good home ( he is of ill health) It was surely a greater power that brought my new mommy to me.  I got medical attention ( I have bad legs and elbows )  I have pills that are helping me alot... and .. who knew.. I was overweight which didnt help my situation much.
I just know this is going to be where i spend the rest of my days, I have had 3 homes now and finally have found my forever home. ( mom tells me all the time that I am NEVER going anywhere, it makes me soooooo happy)
Some of my favorite things to do are.. Sleep, go for rides to camp ( I can swim!!! whoda thunk it???) and of course our monthly visits to my previous home( I still like to cuddle with Peter and talk with him, and he gets sooo happy to see me too, we have wonderful visits)
Thats all i have to say right now, Thanks for stopping by and reading about me.
