Pembroke Welsh Corgi's Health Insurance

Pembroke Welsh corgis are a famous breed due to being linked with royalty, Queen Elizabeth II has been the owner of Welsh corgis for years having bred her own from the first corgi she owned which was given to her by her parents, she has since owned 16 Pembroke welsh corgis.  Pembroke corgis have also been ranked 11th on the list of the most intelligent dogs and they are also popular working dogs.

They are very loyal dogs that are easily trained, this being down to their intelligence; they are outgoing and make great guard dogs. In general the breed tends to live between 12 to 15 years old. It is important that they keep active and get in the right amount of exercise as they are a small breed becoming overweight can have to serious effects on their health.

One of the main problems related to the size of the corgi and if they become overweight is issues concerning their spine, the most common is arthritis. This can then lead to further problems like osteoarthritis due to their back having to carry the extra weight. They can also suffer from a disease called Degenerative myelopathy this again affects the spinal cord and can lead to them losing their hind legs; the end result of the illnesses is sadly them becoming paralysed. There are currently 3 levels of the disease; clear, carrier and at risk; unfortunately there are more ‘at risk’ and ‘carrier’ dogs than there are ‘clean’.  They are currently developments to find treatment and cures for the disease.

They can also pick up hip dysplasia and they can suffer from eye problems, they have also been known to suffer from blood clotting problems, known as Von Willebrand, this disease can be checked for through DNA tests so it is always a good idea to do this. Pembroke Welsh corgis are great little dogs and area lovely addition to a family, many live a full and healthy life and having a good dog insurance policy for them will be a great help if they do become sick.
