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’.

On Wednesday our 11 month old golden retriever Omar dashed out into the street and was hit by a truck. He died. I can't believe he was taken from us so soon, when we adopted him I thought he would be with us for 10 years or more. Instead, he didn't make it to his first birthday. He was our first dog, he made our family complete. 

Omar you were so wonderful, you made every day bright. I loved your feet and your soft snout and how your whole body wiggled when you wagged your tail. Seeing you was always the happiest part of my day. I loved taking you for walks and playing ball with you. It was so fun when we went camping. You loved car rides so much. I'm sorry you never had the chance to swim in the ocean.


 I miss you so so much. On your birthday we will plant a tree in your memory to remember you always.

I miss you Omar, you gave us so much love and happiness during your too short life.
