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’.

Howdy!
I just had my 1 year adoption birthday and I love my home and my job. I am a meet and greeter for my Mom's home music-teaching business and I love to show everyone to the music room and then sleep during their lessons. I know everyone by name and I know exactly who likes to play (and who doesn't). For fun I play with my people friends Ashley, Sam and Noah, and I go hiking or to the doggie park every day. I don't like bicycles very much and I really hate my gentle leader although it's much better than getting a sore neck with the other collar. P.S. My cousins Penny, Lucy and Snoopy are also on here!
