Corgi baby Emmy was born with a serious back leg and hips deformity.
She is an extra sweet, calm and patient, puppy, perhaps the type many people dream to own. Gets along well with dogs and cats at foster home
But casual inbreeding in the process of “producing” pure breed dogs for sale, might have caused her deformity, she lacked the NormaL curvature of a dogs back leg, her knee is as if twisted pointing back instead of front.
She walks like the Chinese Halloween vampire, hopping.
It might be ok for now, but not long after even her spine will hurt.
Vet n us all agreed to try surgery on her legs, but that will require physiotherapy right after, surgery turns the bone structure back to the right direction, but the whole muscle memory needs to learn and that requires consistent, daily if not hourly exercise, which our foster has been amazing in dedicating her time and effort in.
Even with everybody’s help, her surgery is costly, only the first surgery costed $35,241, and that’s only medical expense.
Physiotherapy expense will also be tens of thousand, as it won’t be sth 1 or 2 sessions can “cure”.
Fortunately in hk we have trusted animal physiotherapist, who is experienced and seen many bone surgery recovery patients.
She ensures we learn the bone structure, make sure everyone learnt the exercises correctly.
Road of recovery is still very long.
We can’t be sure if she can walk again, but we’ll try at least.
