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’.

Our Little Girl Antares

Was born as the runt of the litter,and was squeezed in between her 2 brothers.

My husband and I gladly took her home at exactly 8 weeks old.To which she became the absolute joy of our lives, as we have no children, she immediately became our child..............between the late night cries from her cage,mommy or daddy come play with me at 2am,she very quickly became adjusted to sleeping with us in the bed..and for a 3pd dog at the time she made sure she had her spot..

She made sure that both me and her dad got 1001 kisses every morning and night, she loved her walks with dad, and her naps with mom,and helped any ambulance driving by,by howling at it.

As time went on and Antares grew up,she came across several Health issues all serious........but with the help of our vet,,,,,,and our love and devotion to her she was a trooper through it all.

Sadly On Wednesday February 20,2008........My Husband and I had to make the heartwrenching decision  to put Our Little Girl to rest...she had developed  Kidney Failure.....and she was tired.and she looked to us for help and peace.and as we did throughout her 12 and 1/2 years we did as she asked.
