Does anyone have a corgi that was diagnosed with Intervertebral Disc Disease. If so- did a disc ever rupture causing deep pain or the dogs limbs to be partially/completely paralyzed? If needed did surgery help? How was recovery?
I have an 11 year old corgi that my vet and I think has Intervertebral Disc Disease. My corgi has had back pain for about 3 years. I have been controlling it with anti inflammatory medications/pain medications/laser therapy . He has been doing well but as he gets older I can see him getting more uncomfortable. I have had x-rays done but not a myelography (dye is injected into the spinal canal, and x-rays are taken which will show the exact location(s) of spinal cord compression) done, but I think that's only done if surgery is needed. My dogs limb reflex's are good and he does not have deep pain but shivers when he is uncomfortable. I'm just worried about a disc rupturing in the future. I'm wondering if anyone else has a corgi with Intervertebral Disc Disease that could tell me their experiences. Thanks!!!!!!!
