Pet Tip

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’.

Jenna was a doberman rescue, she came to us as a bit of a wreck. She was shy and scared of almost everything, but our other Doberman has been teaching her how to be a Doberman and now she is confident and very loving ( as she always was but to afraid to really show it). She thinks she is a lap dog and only the size of a puppy ( not quite). Very intelligent and sweet she is the perfect girl as we all knew she could be. She loves horses, most other dogs, she is curious of cats but really only likes HER cat (our house cat). She likes all people ( amazingly enough after what she endured ) but is very protective of house and HER people.
Just a nice girl, we love her.
