The Story of Mickey

Last Updated: June 07, 2014

Rescuer: Barbara Blume at blumebb@yahoo.com


Here is Mickey's story, in the words of his rescuer:
"Mickey was found wandering by a young girl who tried to find his owners, but after 3 months called us to take him. We were ecstatic that he was HW neg, but what he did have was a progressed case of a yeast infection on his skin. I reached down to pet him, came away with a hand full of fur and left bare skin behind. He also had a bad case of conjunctivitis, so bad he was squinting. We treated him for the infections, neutered and chipped him. the eye was not any 2 rounds of eyedrops. By this time it had cleared up enough that the vet could see a secondary infection on his inner eyelid. Another round of a different antibiotic and more ketoconazole since the yeast infection was not quite gone. the yeast. Then we discovered that he had ear mites, probably compounded by the yeast. And I am not used to drop ear dogs. Finally what I took for enthusiasm, became noticeable to me that when most dogs would break into a trot, he hopped. X-rays reveal spinosis and spondilosis. His eye is finally starting to reopen but he will probably always have a bit of a squint. He has to have eye drops daily. As the vet said, his inner eyelid is like a worn out windshield wiper. The final thing this boy needed was a growth taken off behind his elbow, on his side. When the vet aspirated it, it had more than just the fatty tissue, some lymph cells, I think. Please let this be the last of our HW neg corgi.
"Despite all of this, he is a very happy go lucky boy."
CorgiAid has helped Mickey with all of his various issues, as he fights to get comfortable and healthy. Thank you!
Mickey was rescued in Texas.
