    I had a Pembroke Welsh Corgi who had Degenerative Myelopathy. She had a wheel cart and lived to almost 12 years old. There is a Yahoo group for owners of corgis with DM or disc disease at Wheelcorgis@Yahoogroups.com and there is a new book out about caring for corgis with mobility issues at http://thedailycorgi.blogspot.com/2013/05/bobbie-mayer-touching-hearts-for-corgis.html

    I am a qualified canine massage therapist and find that regular massage from ‘middle age’ (or actually from the time your dog is a puppy) can really help with their mobility issues in their senior years. I have a number of senior dogs who come to me regularly to help ease out stresses and strains. Clearly massage therapy can’t cure arthritis but can certainly help to ease any associated tension. It is worth a try. Dr Les @ AchyPaw
