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’.

Ranger was a part our family he was more than a dog he was like another kid in our family. From the day he frist came to live with us at 8 weeks old we were in love with him.For 5 and half year he was part our lives. He was a happy and lively pet than one day he just became very sick we got he to the vet and thought we got him well and the vet said he would be find but the next moring he died. I stayed with him because I didn't want him to die alone. I proismed him he could stay in his backyard and that is where he is buried close to the family he loved so much. We love you boy and will miss you.
