View Full Version : Taffy's MRI Scan

24th November 2006, 08:27 AM
Well I bit the bullet and took Taffy for an MRI scan at ChesterGates, some of you may know Geoff doesn't grade the scan but his results were fantastic

No herniation
Ventricles "normal"
Syringohydromyelia Absent
Middle Ear Disease Absent

He said that Taffy was up with the best he had ever scanned, to say I am pleased is an understatement

Thought I would add a recent picture of my special lad :)

What a bonny boy he is. Give him and the rest an extra cuddle please.

wow you must be delighted.............great news :flwr:

That's great news - congratulations, Ozzy has a very mild clinical malformation, which we hope when he has his next scan will stay the same or that his skull has grown..... wishing and praying on that one.

Congratulations!!!! Good news!!!!

Will you contact Clare Rusbridge/Penny Knowler with these results? Also -- if he isn't neutered he will be of value too. :) He is such a beautiful dog -- his pic always gets me longing for a B&T... :lol:

He has been listed on the Cavalier website as being scanned, and Margaret Carter has his details and my permission to pass his results on

Great! :thmbsup: It is wonderful to have some good clear/clears for the MRI list and really allows breeders to make some extra-informed breeding decisions. Jaspar was also given a clear/clear from Mr Skeritt but does have some PSOM. Unfortunately I'd already had him neutered.

WOW!!!! Congratulations! :jump: That's absolutely fantastic! Good for you for getting him scanned!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And Taffy is GORGEOUS! :lotsaluv:

Great news. Your Taffy is just beautiful :l*v:

Ditto! Beautiful beautiful B/T. When (if) I ever decide to add a third dog (maybe need to find a guy first who loves my dogs :badgrin: :badgrin: ) I'll be so torn between another B/T and a Blen or Tri. I don't think I could do ruby puppyhood again. Why do we not have an exhausted smiley?! :roll:

Well done to Karlin too for Jaspar's results :)

That is wonderful news!!!!. Was he showing signs of SM?

28th November 2006, 07:39 AM
No, no signs at all but wanted to be sure he was as clear as possible before he was used at stud

So refreshing to see responsible breeders who scan :flwr:

Rach, he is one gorgeous boy too - if I were you I'd be expecting lots of calls from other breeders wanting him to father puppies ;)

Taffy, what an exciting time awaits you ;) :lol:
