Health Tests

We test our AKC Pembroke Welsh Corgis for DM, EIC, VWD1, PRA, and Fluff. Most Pembroke Welsh Corgis do not test for all of these issues. Below is an explanation of each issue. Every Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy we breed is safe from the health issues of: DM, EIC, VWD1, and PRA.

DM is Degenerative Myelopathy. DM is when a Pembroke Welsh Corgi's spinal cord deteriorates as it gets older, and results in the rear legs becoming paralyzed. Studies show that 52% of Pembroke Welsh Corgis are At Risk of developing DM, only 37% are safe as Carriers, and only 11% of Pembroke Welsh Corgis are DM Clear.

EIC is Exercise Induced Collapse. EIC is commonly misdiagnosed as a Heat Stroke. Your Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy is going to run! If a Pembroke Welsh Corgi is affected by EIC it can handle normal running, but in the right conditions too much running will result in the Pembroke Welsh Corgi becoming wobbly and collapsing for 5-25 minutes. In some cases EIC can result in death.

VWD1 is Von Willebrand Disease Type 1. VWD1 is when blood doesn't clot. Accidents can happen at any age with Pembroke Welsh Corgis, who love to run with their herding instincts. Depending on the injury, if the blood doesn't clot you could lose your Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

PRA is Progressive Retinal Atrophy. PRA starts as night blindness at just a few months old, and escalates to full blindness in Pembroke Welsh Corgis by ages of 1-4 years old.

FLUFF is simply the length of hair on a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The breed standard is to have straight medium length hair, and a little longer hair around the chest plate and lower body. It's considered a Fault in Dog Shows if a Pembroke Welsh Corgi has long wavy hair all over it's body. There is no health risk of having longer hair. We've never bred a fluffy, but we might breed a few in the future since it's simply a long haired corgi.
