Here is Corey's story, in the words of his rescuer.
"Corey Newman's former owner has dementia and although she took good care of him for most of his life, over the past 2 or 3 years she neglected his care because of her mental deterioration. We were told by his former veterinarian that he has a history of bladder stones and that he was operated on in 2008 for stone removal. He was supposed to be kept on Rx dog food (Hill's U/D), but he was not.
"Corey Newman needed X-rays done, based on his history, to make sure he had no bladder stones. He also seemed sensitive in his left rear side. X-rays showed no new stones and arthritis in his left hip. Also,he has what appears (in X-rays) to be a large sewing needle embedded in the muscle, near the hip area on his right side!"
CorgiAid supporters will help Corey get healthy, so he can look forward to a comfortable and happy retirement. Thank you!
At this point, Corey's vets think it would be worse for him to remove the needle than to leave it alone. If that thinking changes in the future, CorgiAid supporters will help with the cost of removing it.
Corey was rescued in Massachusetts.
