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’.

Cliff was the smartest cat I've ever got ! He was almost talking, he was doing his things on the toilet and he was waking me up in the morning at the same hour for about 1 years ! This cat was like my kid and I will never forget Him ! He passed out on a cold night of August... at 3.20 a.m Cliff got an urinary tract disorder and the operation was too expensive, plus, the cat was going to suffer for 3 months on some medication and stuff like that,..,. When Cliff look me in the eyes while the doctor was taking his temperature I just knew what he wanted... I did it... I let go my 2 years old baby cat this night, It was awfull... I can't stop thinking about him and how he was a great cat... I miss him so much... His lil brother here miss him too and the first week was the hardest ! It was like a best-friend and I will always remember him... I love you my lil cliff !
