    Thanks all for your comments. I took Duke to the vet, and like you said Sharon he looked at me like I was crazy when I asked about cold tail. He said it was an inflammation. He gave Duke pills for pain and said it should go away in couple days. Sams Mom it was very scary especially since I had never seen/heard of it. He looks so pitiful right now.

    I took some really pathetic pictures of Moka when she had cold tail. She looked more pitiful than usual.
    It took a couple of days to go away, but she was fine.
    I did not give her anything for the pain, she didn;t seem to be in too much pain...she just couldn;t wag her tail!!

    Definately sounds like cold tail-like you we made the mistake of taking Bailey to the vet the first time it happened and suprise suprise he said it was an infection and gave him a jab that cost about £80 because it was a Sunday and we had panicked and gone as an emergency. The most frightening thing (apart from the vet bill) is the sight of a lab without a waggy tail. He recovered well within a day or so so if it happens now we know exactly what it is.

    Cold tail. My girls have all had it. They look so pathetic. I rest mine a couple days & it resolves. Hope your boy feels better soon.

    Those of you that have dogs that had cold tail...did they get it more than once...how often do they get it? I wonder if some dogs are more prone than others. I hope this doesn't happen too much, he looks so sad and like others have said, it's said/weird to have a lab that can't wag his tail! Of course Paisley if clueless and has no idea what's going on...

    Sam's only had it once, but it was enough. Something very disturbing and scary about a Lab that doesn't wag.

    Belle had it several times when she was young, but eventually she never got it again.
