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’.

Hi!  I'm Moka, and I looooove my family.  They are so affectionate, and I love to return the affection.  I like to lick their ears, and I love playing with people feet!  Actually, I just love playing at all. My favorite toys are my squeaky sheep from my sister, and my pink snow man ball toy from aunt Tracy.  I also love going for walks and exploring. I really like to play with the cat, but my owners don't let us play together. I drink a ton of water, at least 3 or 4 bowls full every day in the winter..even more in summer!!! And I hate it when my owners leave me.  I do not mind my cage, but it is lonely without anyone to play with me.  My favorite thing to eat is wet food, but I only get that as a special treat once in a while. And I am not allowed to have table food, but my sister lets me have some when mom and dad are not looking.  My favorite times are when all of my family is together and we watch movies [and they all love and pet and scratch me!!]
Those are good times.
