    I didn't know labs were prone to problems, I have a lab who is six and the only thing he has had wrong is he riped his gut open on bared wire but still walkedback to me with intestines hanging out. Other wise he has been no problem I guess he must just be lucky. Good luck getting the tail sorted.

    Hi widows son... pound to a penny your mate's dog has frozen tail syndrome. Tail hanging uncomfortable to sit generally not happy dog. Treat soonest. Treatment of choice is PBZ ( phenylbutazone ) 100 mg table twice daily for a week followed by 1 tablet daily for a week. Give with food. This condition tends to recur at infrequent intervals
