After an overnight stay at Metropolitan Animal Hospital Baron had a set of x-rays of both front legs. The final diagnosis is a premature closure of the distal ulnar growth plate resulting in elbow dysplasia. We have 2 options. 1) medical management with medicam for pain and cosequin for arthritis. 2) surgery to perform an ulnar osteotomy to free the bone and allow it to line up with the distal humerus. Surgery would give Baron a 70-80% chance of improvement. Right now Baron has moderate discomfort and occasional lameness. My main concern beside the risks of major surgery is that Baron will have to have complete crate rest for 6 weeks, with only potty breaks. Has anyone had this surgery done on their corgi?
