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’.

I am a hyper and big time Daddies girl. I like to run non-stop, I have NO END to my energy. I jump around to make up for my height, since in this family I am the shor/small one. I love to give kisses, do my "zoomies" around the back yard, and BARK at anything that moves, I love being around my mom and dad, well especially dadand my brother Marley-I took him under my wing when mom and dad brought him home. I didn't even like them to get in my way of being next to him. I love to cuddle given the chance, but I know when to lay down, most of the time. I do mind my manners durning meal times with the family. I lay under the table and rarely beg, I know I will get rice and veggies and maybe some chicken if I am quiet and let mom and dad eat in peace(trying to teach my brother that but he is still too much of a puppy to get it). I love pretty much everyone, but maybe shy at first, when I warm up to you though-watch out!!! I am always around to protect my dad and mom, if need be. They need someone watching out for them. I am the biggest sweetheart you will ever meet.
