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’.

A young boxer (about 1 year old) is found in the streets of downtown Montreal. He is brought to the SPCA, but never claimed. A young woman, meaning well, adopts the cute little huney buney sitting at the end of his cage. She calls him Trump. But it turns out this dog isn't perfect from the get-go. After only a few months, she gets a job offer outside of town and decides the pup isn't worth moving with her and calls Boxer Rescue. The amazing and sweet lady from Boxer Rescue takes him to a wonderfull new home - they name him Buster. This new home has a very young child. The parents never properly introduce this new addition to the young child and often leaves them together unsupervised. the dog is deamed 'not good' with the baby and is promptly returned to Boxer Rescue. 3 different homes, and this dog isn't even 2 years old.This is when I get the call -- at 8 o'clock at night. Boxer Rescue called me telling me they had a foster who needed a home right away (his family couldn't wait to give him up). He shows up at my house at 9 o'clock and I fall in love with him. His big brown eyes look so sad and so anxious. He doesn't understand what's going on. He suffered from pretty serious seperation anxiety, and wasn't perfect from the get-go. He cowarded (still does) at baseball bats and brooms. And was weary of large men. But with a little work, alot of patience and tons and tons of love, Buster Brown has turned into the most wonderfull dog in the world. He's finally at a normal weight (he was WAY skinny when we got him!) and is a regular loving playfull Boxer. If you adopt, or Rescue a dog or even buy a puppy -- just know he won't be perfect right away. Dogs need to be trained -- without being hit. All the work and effort pays off in the end.
