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’.

I really do miss Buddy. I got him on October 10th, 2005, one day before my birthday. I told him all of my problems and I swear he listened so well. He was the best fish I ever had. It was my fault he died and I am so mad at myself for it. I hadn;t cleaned his tank in about 2 weeks and it was very dirty plus we had no fish food so he didn't eat for a few days. Every morning I would look in his tank and say hello Buddy. One mornig I woke up and he was dead in the corner of his tank. I wanted to bawl my eyes out. At least he is in a better place now. I can't wait to see you over the rainbow bridge Buddy. I'll love you forever.
