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, Buckwheat, am the best pal that anyone could ask for. I am loyal, friendly, and downright adorable! My favorite spot is under the computer desk, warming my Papa's feet. My favorite time of day is puppy dinner time and I will do anything to hang on to my favorite toy. I have a new little sister, Pfeifen, that sometimes drives me crazy, but we get along pretty well most of the time (when she's not chewing on my tail!). I love going in the truck and I am always excited to go for walks in the park. My Papa is my best friend, and Mom is always there when I need a hug, Pfeifen is not so bad either.
