Limber tail

Post by LyndaW on Wed Nov 05, 2014 8:55 pm

First topic message reminder :

Troubles never happen singly, do they?

As well being heavily involved and pre-occupied with my son's problems recently (no major emergencies - don't worry!), I dropped my very heavy loo-seat onto my thumbnail. The pain was out of all proportion to this silly mishap, and my thumbnail is a very fetching shade of blue/black!

BUT - Kuchar was real droopy-draws yesterday, didn't enjoy his walks at all, was very mopey all day with a hunted, anxious look on his face. All vital signs OK and he ate up his dinner. But both my son and I noticed separately that when we caressed him and ran his tail through our hand as we are prone to do, he didn't like his tail touched at all and ran off with that look on his face. This morning I touched him gently at the base of his tail and he ran off again. Plus, as far as we can remember, he hasn't wagged his tail since the day before yesterday and it's just kind of drooping there.

Now, until I entered these forums (now only THIS forum!) I had never heard of limber tail (my previous two dogs - Dobies - had been docked as tiny puppies) but I remembered Caryll mentioning it so I looked it up on the net and I feel pretty sure that this is Kuchar's problem.

Rest is mentioned as treatment - does this mean not walking the dog? He enjoyed his walks more today but his tail is still just dangling there.

Anti-inflammatories were also mentioned.

I would be grateful for anyone's opinion - thank you!

Not sure about that! You've all been very helpful and reassuring, and for that I am very grateful.

Yes, so good to see Kuchie happy again and wagging that tail!

(Thank you for the kind words Eleanor - they gave me a warm fuzzy feeling inside blush )
