Our 9 yr. old corgi, Kozzie, was just diagnosed with hip dysplasia. Well, the vet did not call it that, but by the xrays and her explanation, I am saying that is what it is. The ball of his hip does not fit into the socket the way that it should. She said our options were to give him NSAIDs and to limit his running. regular walking or swimming would be fine, but not his usual run like the wind at the dog park. She said that hip replacement in corgis is not very common in that the replacement parts come from humans and they are too big for corgis. She said that they could scrape some of the bone away and scar tissue would form and that could help. I don't know what to do. I am sure that surgery would be extremely expensive, but the NSAIDs are not doing the trick. He will be fine one day and the next he is so sad and just lays in his kennel like he needs help getting up. He has been very active up until last week. I don't want him to be in constant pain. Has anyone ever had a corgi with hip replacement or found something that worked? I would appreciate any information. Thanks!!
