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’.

Lisa, I love you more
than anything in the world and I'll never forget you.
Life without you is so sad. Life is unfair, why you
had to go so early.
I hope you are well and I hope some day we meet again at the Rainbow-Bridge. I kiss you the last time.
I love you!

Lisa, ich hab dich über alles lieb und ich werd dich nie vergessen. Das Leben ohne dich ist trist und traurig. Das Leben ist unfair, warum musstest du so früh gehen. Ich hoffe dir geht gut, dort wo du jetzt bist, und ich hoffe wir sehen uns wieder an der Regenbogenbrücke. Ich küsse dich das letzte mal. Ich liebe dich!
