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 like strangers, children and babbies. I am a very playful dog. I go to doggie school because my owners are going crazy from me being so excited. I like every thing I really dont have any dislikes. however, I do not like you petting me when I have food. my worst pet peeve is my owners leave me aloun when they go to work, and my brother. he takes all my treats and eats them when he has his.I dont have a favourite toy but, I like to take my owners kids toys and run around the house and get them to chase me. I love to sit on my owners lap or at her feet. my most embarrassing moment was when I was running away from my owners kids and I hit my head on a wall. The most cherished moment for me is when my owner tells me she loves me.
