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’.

Tyson was a character with a vibrant personality. He loved to go for walks and just to be around people in general. Pet Peeve- Tyson loved to lick anything in site lol. People used to say why does he do that and its so slimy. I just said that was his way of saying hello and he liked the salt on the body of a man or a woman. Tyson loved to howl when he was in the room by himself even tho I was in another room and at the end he couldnt get around to do that. He loved to break tennis balls or he have a ball and stare at it for hours lol. it was funny. He loved to lay outside in the grass in the summer when it was cool and when the winter came he loved to just sit in the snowbank and lick the snow falling down.

Tysons most embarrasing moment would have been when I was walking him on a trail and people would just stop out of nowwhere to say how beautiful he was. He just cock his leg and pee on their bikes, omg its funny as I remember him doing that. He sit while we ate and breathe so hard that saliva would pour out of his mouth with his hot breath looking to get a piece of what ever we had.

Tyson loved kids and when my grandaughter was born she sit in the chair and he lick her feet and hands. She would giggle.
