Limp or flaccid tail
Posted 11 March 2012 - 10:21 AM
Has anyone else had this problem with their Labs?
I have done some searching on the internet and found a few blogs saying it is called 'cold water tail' and it particularly affects Labradors after swimming and especially if they swim for longer than they would usually swim for. Does anyone have any more information on this topic?
I would be grateful for any help, thanks.

The good news is that Dexter's tail is flying at full mast again and wagging as it usually is and most importantly able to sit down again without problem which is a great relief. I gave him the anti-inflammatory medication for three days and it has steadily improved until being back to normal today.
Thanks again for the help.

Last year after a full day of swimming our black lab Buddy came down with cold tail. I took him to our vet and believe it or not she had never heard of the condition! I was shocked! He recovered nicely in about 4 days. Poor Buddy hasn't had another case of it since.
