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’.

im sorry i dont have a picture of my beautiful little kitten to include in my tribute i dont know how or why but in 3 short weeks this beautiful kitten whose name i gave her was really long but was known as midnight for short managed to work her way into my heart and i will miss her so much she brought joy to the lives of me and everyone she touched she was so tiny when i first got her i had found her at a flea market from a vendor someone else had dumped her but she was purring from the time she entered my arms until the time she died and everyone in my house loved her dearly i weep now as i write this because she meant so much to me she died when my one dog went after her the dog didnt bite her but hit her hard enough that her little neck snapped like a twig for the last few minutes of life she was twisting and contorting and riving in pain we laid her in a box and then gave her a proper burial but i am finding it so hard to let go so goodbye midnight may we be reunited someday until then i will miss you
