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’.

our time together was never limited but only by this earth bound process. you where brought to me by the the flow of the water's edge. we spent many times under the moon and stars of a lighted patio. and your love was always seen through your yellow green eyes. i can still see the sun's highlights across your fur. i always found you to be a gift of gratitude when i walked into my home and found you waiting. thank you for loving me so much. i hope to find your spirit guides me through the final stages of this life time. i love you endlessly
