For a while now, Shelby has looked underweight. Is 20lb a normal weight for a corgi. She was also the runt of the littler. I feed her twice a day and she usually eats all of it. I am very worried for her because her ribs stick out a LOT. In absolutely no way have I ever mistreated or abused my wonderful little dog. Just last night, he wasacting very strangley and whinning. We could not determine the source of the problem. She curled up and went right back to bed. The whole event lasted less than a minute. She has been vomiting a lot recently. Please help me, I'm very worried and I am scheduling an appointment with our vet.

Update: She has been diagnosed with congenital kidney disease. Does anyone who of a way to make her more comfortable?

UPDATE: The test came back. She has congenital kidney disease.
I am very sorry to hear that. Are there treatment options?
No. All we can do is get some lower protein food and hope we have more time than what they said.

I am so sorry to hear that. My husband and I send our sincerest sympathy. Big hugs.
Oh my goodness! Im sooo sorry! You are all in my prayers. Keep me posted. Im terribly sorry.
Oh, I am SO sorry. That is not what I wanted to hear.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, and Shelby.
Oh Sam and Shelby...I am so sorry! Our thoughts and prayers are with you! Hold that little one tight and give her all the love you can with whatever time you have left!
I am really sorry to hear this. Please give her a hug for me.
I am so sorry to hear about Shelby. Hold her tight and give her lots of love.
You know what? Even if I had known about it, it still would have gotten her. She is the best dog I could have asked for and I love her like she is my sister. I've never met a dog with more character.
Love is always worth it.
