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’.

Words cannot express the love and appreciation we have for you.  You fought so gallantly to stay with your family, and what a brave, stoic little boy you have been over the years.


You were the sweetest and most gentle of all dogs, your loss is so great and our hearts are broken.  I will miss everything about you, your unique ways and the love noises you made when we stroked you.  The last night I spent with you, just laying next to you, stroking your beautiful head will always flood my heart with such sweet sorrow.  You have taught us so much, especially Daddy, who was your favorite person.  He never left your side and we did everything we could to make your last days comfortable.


Thank you for all the joy you bought to our lives, you were a wonderful gift, and we will miss your beautiful soul.   Oh, those sweet sweet brown eyes of yours, I wish I could see them one last time.  Please wait for us.  Until then enjoy being painfree and run with the birds.


 


Your broken hearted family
