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, my name is Sydney. I'll be 7 months old this month (February 12). I love to play all the time especially in the snow. One of my favorite things to do is fetch my bobo. Also I like to nap on my parents lap. I try not to beg, cause my mom & dad don't like it when I do. One of my other favorite things is to look out the window and bark at the kids coming home from school. I'm still learning how to be good in the house and walk on my leash. I hope you enjoy my picture. That was taken this past fall, I just love to run after the leaves..
