Are Corgis Unhealthy?

No, corgis aren’t unhealthy. Typically, they live happy, active lives for 12-13 years.

As a small breed, they are somewhat prone to certain skeletal issues, such as hip dysplasia, intervertebral disc disease and degenerative myelopathy as they age. However, responsible breeders carry out screening to minimize the risks of these and other genetic issues that develop later in life.

To keep your corgi in the best of health, ensure it has a good diet, plenty of physical and mental stimulation, and that it maintains a healthy weight. Annual veterinary check-ups will help spot any potential issues early on and reassure you that your pet will remain in the best of health.
