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’.

you have only been gone a few short days and  we think about you all the time. You were a big part of our family and you will always hold a place in our heart. I want to thank you for the time we had together you changed our lives in so many ways. I didn't know an animal could bring such joy to our lives. Your time with us was much to short. Gone but never forgotten. I hope you are looking down at us from Kitty heaven with a smile on your face. R.I.P. Harold  gone but never forgotten.
