Broken Tail?

6 posts in this topic

Yesterday, I noticed my 1 yr old yellow lab's tail didn't look right. It looks swollen and when I inspected it further it didn't seem to hurt her when I handled it. She won't wag it and doesn't want to sit down. She had been wrestling earlier with two other dogs. So my question is can they break their tails or is it most likely just a pulled muscle?

Has your dog been swimming in cold water in the past couple days? Dogs can get cold water tail syndrome. It goes away in a few days. The dog generally doesn't wag their tail and the tail is very sensitive to the touch. It appears the tail is broken.

Could be broken but if your dog isn't in a lot of pain your dog could have limber tail. Do a google on "limber tail syndrome" and see if the symptoms sounds similar to what your dog is experiencing.

Yep, that's sounds exactly what is going on. And yes, she's has been swimming quite a bit in the pond next to the house. It looked better this morning and she was wagging it a little when I fed her.

Thanks guys!

Confucus say: every dog has his day. But a dog with a broken tail has a weak end.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
