"only thing I question in his treatment is why use Steroids and cortizone in a joint problem. Steroids and Cortizone erode the joint over time, and have to be re-administered often. They do a miracle in the short term , but long…"
The original ortho/surgeon called me and discussed the options. Since the ultrasound was inconclusive at best, only ruling out a lateral bicep muscle tear, she said that likely he just has a "really bad sprain", and…"
"my old corgi, PHIL, was large...at 5 he started to gain weight and as a consequence he started to have joint problems in his shoulders and one back. i tried all the dog foods in PetSmart - I read , and read , and read.Tried all the weight…"
"Almost 2 years ago Max started having trouble with his neck, kept his head in a titled position and was obviously in pain. Took him in for xrays and it showed a calcification. I was sick, I could not leave him in pain and could not…"
Brian went to see the ortho last week. She checked him out thoroughly, agreed that it is his right front leg as well. She tested him, was fairly certain it was not his neck, and was much more suspicious of his shoulder,…"
"I, too, have a 5y/o F Corgi who was bred once before being surrendered to Humane Society. I was blessed to find her since my previous tricolour (Joey) had just passed.
Winnie, like many of the Corgis mentioned in these replies, goes lame…"
After years of whining about how much I wanted a corgi, I finally went out and got one. He was my college graduation present to myself, and was the best thing I ever did!
Then once I finished graduate school, I figured I should just make it a tradition of rewarding myself with a corgi, hence my new girl, Karly.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Brian is a red/white PWC, born Feb 1, 2008. His favorite activities include barking at basically anything that makes noise (favs are vacuum, hairdryer, paper shredder, coffee maker, and blender), any type of food, doing tricks to try and get food, chewing, playing and running, not listening....the list goes on and on!
Karly is my other red/white PWC, born March 2007. I got her as a 3 yr old.....she had originally been kept as a showdog, but I guess didn't make the cut, so I was the lucky recipient! Karly is the exact opposite of her "brother" as she just loves to kick back and cuddle!
No problem! I hear you haha. When Ziggy makes me want to rip my hair out (he can be a BIG BRAT on walks) the only thing that stops me frm cartoon style football kicking his Corgi butt into next year is his adorable face and little legs lol!! Yes, I have a lot to save up. I need to save up an emergency vet fund for Ziggy at least $1,000 and then double it for the next doggy, save up for the vet check up and stuff that will go with the new dog upon adoption, (I am sticking with older dogs until I don't have to work all the time lol) toys, beds, etc. Ziggy doesn't play with toys, and he sleeps in our bed, so he doesn't have anything dog. (which is good, bc now that he has them available to him, he won't touch them. I knew it lol) Boy, I bet student loans are killer!D: I am going to try and go to college, but I dunno what for yet lol. Something to do with genetics/biology probably is my best bet, as it's the only subject I actually liked in high school haha.
I can't wait to add a second Corgi to my place:) This next one will be a reward! (For working to save up enough money to have one, as it will be my first job haha.) Ziggy was a "Just because I really needed a Corgi" adoption;) No reward lol. I just can't live without him!
