Looks like Barney's suitable for scanning for the research.... Hope he scans clear, it would be so good!!
I've spoken to Penny Knowler today and she's going to try to sort it for this month.

It's always a worry putting a dog through an anaesthetic but I think we're doing the right thing :)

I had a feeling he might be! You're very good to do this and fingers crossed for a good result for both you and the research teams.

Thank you SO much for doing this Teresa, it's really good of you cl*pcl*p

I know it's always an anxious time putting a dog through an anaesthetic, especially when it is something which is not essential for their own health, but it is so important for the research.

We have everything crossed here for you for good results - let us know as soon as you have a date please.

Thanks everyone, I know in my heart that it's the right thing to do....although I do feel a bit mean on Barney personally...and I will worry about it at the time. He's a healthy boy and I'm sure he'll be fine :) If he could choose for himself I'm sure he'd want to do it too.
You can choose not to know the result but I would like to know either way!!

This is such a wonderful gesture. Thank you so much for helping to give a healthier future to this lovely breed.

Thanks Margaret - I do think it's worth it!! Hopefully he'll be scanned at Bath and not have to travel to Wimbledon. Just waiting to hear...I'll be so pleased if he scans clear, for him and the breed and research!! If anyone else has syptom free dogs aged five years plus please consider having them scanned!! :)

I love that thought and I am certain you are right. Barney would want to help. Bless both you and Barney.

This is great news -- delighted to know he will be scanned and fingers and paws crossed for a great result! :)

Barney will be scanned in Bath or Bristol, not Wimbledon....I'm happier with this as it will only be about thirty minutes travelling either way :)

Nicki
6th May 2010, 11:00 PM
oh that's good news, lucky you :grin:

Last time I went to the scanner we went to Chestergates - 10 1/2 hours drive for me :yikes:yikes {so overnight stops each way}

Wear referrals is closer at 366 miles, 6 1/2 hours each way - but still too far for me to go in one day and I don't have anyone to stop with that route. That's my nearest scanning facility {low cost schemes}

Do you have a date yet?

Teresa

My goodness that's a long way to travel!!

I didn't really want to travel to London even though it's only a couple of hours away...I'm a bit allergic to motorways lol

Penny emailed me earlier today but no date as yet...x

Barney's all booked in for next Friday 10am...bless him snoring on the sofa oblivious to what's coming!!

Nicki
7th May 2010, 03:34 PM
Oh that's good not too long to wait then.

Bless him - nothing like a Cavalier snore ;)


{It was worth the long trip - took Daisy and three 8 month olds - all had excellent scans, Tommy just had PSOM and dilated ventricles}

Glad your long trip was worth it Nicki!! :):)

Hoping for a GOOD outcome on Friday.
You and Barney will be in my thoughts. Have you got someone to come with you?

Teresa
7th May 2010, 05:00 PM
I'm going on my own but that's ok....going to come home when he's having it done to spend some time with Cassie...x

Good luck Teresa and Barney - will be thinking of you and hoping for a good result :D

I'm not sure if you will be given your results tomorrow - you might have to wait for a certificate in the post so please don't be disappointed if you do have to wait.

Take care and safe journey.

Thanks to you both!! :)

I thought I might have to wait to hear...Not keen on Barney being put out either but I'm sure he'll bounce back but will probably be jumped on by Cassie when he's home....Might give him my bed for once for some peace and quiet.

As for Barney I think the worst thing for him will be having no bedtime biscuit in a min or breakfast in the morning!! He loves his food, I'll feel mean feeding Cassie and not him...

Teresa

Well what will be will be....dropped Barney at ten he was so chilled out he fell asleep in the waiting room lol

Nicki
14th May 2010, 01:24 PM
Well that's good to hear - bless him.

I'm sure you will be on edge all day but the anaesthetics are brilliant now, Stone Lion are fantastic and very experienced with anaesthetics.

It will probably be worse for you than for him!!

Teresa
14th May 2010, 01:48 PM
I think you're right!! Cassie isn't missing him so that's ok....

He's at Bath referrals so closer to home. I've not been there before but they seem very good.

No news until Clare sees his scan though...

Glad Barneys home none the worse for wear. :xfngr: for a good result. You shouldn't have to wait too long. Clare did Minnie's MRI on a Thursday and she emailed me the results on the Sunday evening.
