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’.

                My mum owns Kitzspa Cattery, we sell Burmese kittens. Our first breeding female was Cinders I had a special bond with her. I was her favorite she was mine. She has had many kittens, She has had seven litters, most of all she was my big sweet heart.


                We were taking her into be spayed, we took her to our vet. I was home alone, the vet called and said she passed away, a very hard thing on a 14yr old girl. She had a disease called HMR, which is a thickening in the hearts walls (can weigh 7-8 pounds in a sever case, usually only starts when the cat is between 3-5yrs). After surgery she was placed in a kennel, and soon after a vet noticed she had stopped breathing, they put her on oxygen but she had a heart attack.


                In one day my baby, sweetheart, and angel was swept away from me. Please cherish your pets and remember to always do what you believe is the right thing to do no matter how hard.

                           a heartstruck teenager
