    I too can't offer any advice, but want to welcome you, and bring your post back up front so perhaps someone who can will see it. Dudley is adorable in your avatar pic!

    to EBN. I Googled hemivertebrate because I didnt know what it meant. I got lots of sites to choose from and I sent you one in a private message. I didnt read the whole article on hemivertebrate but basically it is screw-tailed. It doesnt necessarily mean that he cant live a normal life.
    I hope someone that is more familiar with it answers your question better than I can. ANYway, glad you joined us and I look forward to seeing more of your little bully

    Dudley is darling. I am sorry to hear about his condition. Did he come with a health guarantee from the pet store?

    Welcome to the site and your boy is such a cutie. Is his condition limited to his tail? If so it should not cause any problem. I read on a web site here is a paragraph from it. "The condition can be confirmed through a special x-ray technique known as myelograms can detect if the pain or movement problems are caused by the compression of a hemivertebrae. Surgical procedures can be used to correct the problem depending on the location of the hemivertebrae in the spinal column. Pain management drug therapies as well as restriction from activity will be required in the recovery period." hope this helps and we will be sending him good vibes and thoughts. I just hate pet stores because they usually support puppy mills.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    Welcome to the site!!! I too had to google this and it seems to depend on where it is in the vertebrae as to whether it is considered serious or not.

    Keeping everything crossed for him!!
