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’.

coco was a rescue. He was a very intelligent dog. I had two cats who he protected. They both shared their food bowls. He had very keen hearing, with slightest sound he was at the door guarding his house. He had such an appepite he liked everything.

Terriers are diggers, I found it funny when I sat on my sofa I felt something hidden in the sofa, I found his milkbones very deep in the sofa where he knew it was. when i looked into his big brown eyes i knew he had a soul. he was so mysterious, i will always love him. i hope he is a good boy in heaven and he is digging into the dirt ground to bury his treats. RIP my sweet love. mommy lydia
