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’.

my likes are going and eating out of cats pan, and drink his milk.
 i have no dislikes, i love everything and everyone. especially my grandma and grandpa, thats what i call my owners.
 i dont have any pet peeves, well maybe just one, i love to lick grandpa's toes but he tries to stop me.
 My favorite toy is my ball, and playing with my grandpa.
i love to lay on the couch or my cushion on the floor in front of couch.
Most embarrassing moment, i dont get embarass about anything.
my most cherished memory is coming to live with my older little brother, he is part shih-tzu and yorkie. he is six years old and he doesnt always want to play with me, but i love him anyway
