NeoPar® stimulates antibody production in the presence of existing maternal antibodies. Found to be safe for use in young puppies. This is a modified live version of the virus. For use in dogs only.


Brand name Strongid T, Nemex, is what I use for deworming at the age of 2,4,6 weeks of age, just one dosage per week.

To remove parasites from the body, the biological differences between worm and mammal are exploited. In the case of members of the roundworm family (the “ascarid” worms), the parasitic worm is attached to the host’s intestine by its tiny teeth and/or suckers. Pyrantel acts as a neuromuscular blocker so that the parasite relaxes its grip, effectively paralyzing the worm so that it loses its attachment. The worm is then passed with the feces into the cold, cruel world. Outside of the host protective body, the worm soon dies. Because the medication is absorbed poorly from the host’s intestine, the host is completely unaffected by the paralysis effect. It also helps that the host is substantially larger than the parasite thus the small amounts of medication needed to remove parasites are not of concern to the mammal host.

Pyrantel pamoate is effective against numerous parasitic worms:

  • Roundworms of dogs
  • Roundworms of cats
  • Hookworms
  • Stomach worms (Physaloptera species)

Brand name Panacur/Safeguard, is what I use for deworming at age of 8 weeks old for 7 days straight (one dosage per day prior to transportation).

Panacur is a prescription medication used to control and remove roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and certain tapeworms. Panacur is for dogs and some zoo animals. It controls roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and certain tapeworms. Panacur oral dewormer contains fenbendazole, which kills parasites by disrupting their energy metabolism. Panacur will safely remove roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and Taenia pisiformis (a tapeworm). It will not prevent reinfection with these parasites.

I use this if puppy seems to be stressed out for any reason or seems to have a tummy ache:

Description: Albon is a low-dosage, rapidly absorbed, long-acting sulfonamide, effective for the treatment of a wide range of bacterial infections commonly encountered in dogs and cats.

Albon Oral Suspension 5% Indications and Usage. Albon is indicated for the treatment of respiratory, genitourinary tract, enteric, and softtissue infections in dogs and cats: tonsillitis, pharyngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, cystitis, nephritis, metritis, pyometra, pustular dermatitis, anal gland infections, abscesses, wound infections, bacterial enteritis, canine salmonellosis, bacterial enteritis associated with coccidiosis in dogs when caused by streptococci, staphylococci, escherichia, salmonella, klebsiella, proteus or shigella organisms sensitive to sulfadimethoxine.

Metronidazole (Flaygl):

I use this 5 days prior to transportation: Metronidazole (Flaygl) is commonly used as an anti-diarrheal medication that treat inflammation of the large intestine. It is also effective against certain protozoal and bacterial infections such as Giardia, Trichomonas and Balantidium coli. It is effective against only anaerobic pathogens, but is safe to use in conjunction with many other antibiotics for mixed infections.

Metronidazole is able to treat central nervous system infections that most other drugs cannot treat by penetrating the blood-brain barrier. It is also particularly effective against infections of the bone and teeth

I use this on their 6th and 8th week: Marquis. This provides effective treatment against equine protozoal myeloencephalitis(EPM).  Protects against Sacocystis neuona, which causes EPM, reaching the central nervous system to kill the paraasite before it causes further damage.


The most common health problems in Pembroke Welsh Corgis:

Because of their deformed chondrodysplastic build, intervertebral disk disease (which can lead to paralysis) is more common in Pembroke Welsh Corgis than in most other breeds. Another disease that can lead to paralysis in Corgis is degenerative spinal myelopathy.

Hip dysplasia is common in Pembroke Welsh Corgis. The Orthopedic Foundation of America evaluated the hip X-rays of over 8000 Pembroke Welsh Corgis and found 17% dysplastic. That’s very high, and the true rate is even higher because most of the obviously bad X-rays were not sent in for official evaluation. Elbow dysplasia can also occur.

The most serious eye diseases are cataracts (present at birth and usually leading to blindness), progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), retinal dysplasia, and persistent pupillary membranes.

Epilepsy is a real concern in Pembroke Welsh Corgis AND other breeds not just corgis. Unfortunately there isn’t a test to determine whether or not a dog has primary epilepsy and therefore the diagnosis is based on ruling out other diseases that can cause seizures. We do not warrant against epilepsy.

Blood-clotting disease (von Willebrand’s) occurs in Pembrokes. Fortunately, a simple DNA test is available so you can find out at any time whether your Pembroke Welsh Corgi has von Willebrand’s, carries it, or is completely clear of it. Thus far, test results show about 6% of the breed affected and another 29% carriers.

Allergies cause itchy skin and can lead to bacterial skin infections (pyoderma).

Other health issues in Pembroke Welsh Corgis are heart disease (patent ductus arteriosus), inherited deafness in Corgis with a lot of white on their head, hypothyroidism, and cystinuria. This disease can also affects other breeds other than just corgis. We do not warrant against patent ductus arteriosus or inherited deafness.


Facts about Hip dysplasia and Elbow dysplasia:

Hip dysplasia and Elbow dysplasia are testing thru xray at the ADULT age of two years old. Some breeders will xray their ADULTS at the age of one years of age but the TRUE test is done at the age of two. We DO NOT put our puppies thru this because of age factor.  If you  would like to have this done at your own expense on your corgi you purchase from us, please contact your vet and see what they recommend but we will NOT be held responsible for results. We will not be held responsible for our breeding stock if they produce this. This cannot be detected in an adult dog until they become over 2 years old for Hip dysplasia and Elbow dysplasia testing.

Facts about Degenerative Spinal Myelopathy (also known as DM) and von Willebrand’s (also known as vWD):

Degenerative Spinal Myelopathy (also known as DM) and von Willebrand’s (also known as vWD) are tested thru DNA swab and sent off for testing. If you  would like to have this done at your own expense on your corgi you purchase from us, please contact your vet and see what they recommend but we will NOT be held responsible for results.

Our breeders were tested for Von Willebrand disease I and Degenerative myelopathy Facts about PRA and OFA:

Progressive Retinal Atrophy (known as PRA) only needs to be tested IF your veterinary ophthalmologists finds a rentinal problem in your corgi or IF you would like to know if your corgi is a carrier of this, then you may purchase a test, AT YOUR OWN COST. This is a DNA swab. You would send the test off to a testing lab. This place will test it for Progressive Retinal Atrophy. If you would like your corgi to be OFA, you would make an appointment with a veterinary ophthalmologist who would test your corgi and then you would send in the results to the OFA (with a small fee that they would charge) for this to be certified. Ophthalmologists do not test for PRA, they only test the eyes for OFA certification. PRA is the test for genetics. These are two different tests by two different source. Please contact your vet and see what they recommend but we will NOT be held resposible for results.

Our breeders have been tested for Progressive retinal atrophy, Rod-cone dysplasia 3 Facts about Pyoderma in Dogs:

When a dog’s skin is cut or wounded, there is an increased risk of infection. Pyoderma refers to a bacterial infection of the skin that is very common in dogs. Lesions and pustules (inflamed pus-filled swelling) on the skin, and in some cases partial hair loss, often characterize the infection. Treatment is typically given on an outpatient basis and prognosis is good. The condition described in this medical article can affect both dogs and cats.

Symptoms and Types:

  • Itchiness
  • Pustules
  • Crusted skin
  • Small, raised lesions
  • Loss of hair (alopecia)
  • Dried discharge in affected area

The infection can occur on the superficial layers of the dog’s skin, or if there is a deep laceration, in the inner folds of the skin. The latter infection is referred to as deep pyoderma.


While this bacterial infection can occur in any breed, there are a few types that are predisposed to developing pyoderma, including:

  • German Shepherds with short coats
  • Breeds with skin folds
  • Breeds with pressure calluses
  • Dogs with Staphlococcus intermedius

Dogs have a higher risk of developing an infection when they have a fungal infection or an endocrine disease such as hyperthyroidism, or have allergies to fleas, food ingredients, or parasites such as Demodex.


In most cases, the condition will be examined on a superficial basis and treated accordingly. In the event that the pyoderma appears to be deeper in the dog’s skin, skin scrapings, skin biopsies, and an examination of bacterial cells (smear) may be performed to see if the condition is a result of a more serious underlying medical condition.

We will NOT be held responsible for any defects or health issues due to this is out of our control as a breeder. NOR are we responsible for any testing that you or your vet wishes you to have done, this is at the new owner’s expense and NEVER the breeder.

NexGard Indications
NexGard kills adult fleas and is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis), and the treatment and control of Black-legged tick (Ixodes scapularis), American Dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis), Lone Star tick (Amblyomma americanum), and Brown dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus) infestations in dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age and older, weighing 4 pounds of body weight or greater, for one month.
