    Unhappylimp tail/ cold tail?????

    I'm looking for some advice if anyone has any information on "cold tail" I noticed today that my lab, Haley, has stopped wagging her tail and it's hanging pretty much dead looking. After looking online I've found a few articles mentioning "cold tail" which is described exactly like the condition she has. However all the articles mention being in water swimming or in a cold bath neither of which she's done in the past month. Has anyone heard of this condition happening not related to water?????

    It also can occur after heavy exercise. Usually a few days and it's over. Jefferson did have it so bad once, that it took almost two weeks to recuperate.

    It can also occur from excessive wagging. My chocolate has had it twice - once from wagging and once from an outdoor bath in chilly weather when he had a close encounter of the skunky kind.

    It does resolve on it's own in a few days with any vet intervention.

    My dog suffers from this from excessive tail wagging, it normally sorts itself out after a coupl of days, so there is no panic and i dont go to the vets now when it occurs. As she doesnt seem to be in any discomfort from it.

    Hope your dog recovers soon!

    Dexter was back to normal after about 4 days.
