Cold Water Tail

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

Postby Hollys Rangie » July 1st, 2008, 2:40 pm

Okay, so Murphy (3 and 1/2 year old male Lab/pit mix) went to puppy play school (Doggy Daycare) today and wore himself out playing with all of the other dogs there. Now he has cold water tail again. This is like the 4th time he has had it. Anyway, I called the vet and he said that if Murphy seemed to be in pain or uncomfortable, that I could come and pick up some pain meds.

It usually only takes a couple of days for the tail to straighten back out, but I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas to make the healing process a little faster.

Silly dog just wagged his tail too much. :crazy2:

Any suggestions are welcome!

What exactly is a "cold water tail'"? And if someone tells me to google it, I will make you homemade cookies.

Okay, so now my advice is what they said: "leave it alone". :|

Thank you! Poor little Murphy - he really looks like an idiot when he tries to wag it. :D Unfortunately, I don't think there is much that can be done for it except make him rest. Oh well. :(
