Maybe some-body could answer this Question.

No it's not DEAL or No Deal.

Where is the Evidence that the Health of our Cavaliers has improved much either for MVD or SM over the Past Number of Years.

Where is the evidence that it has deteriorated?

Plenty of evidence that it has deteriorated, actually -- I think few breeders would not state that SM has become a serious problem in the past 5-10 years, and that many breeders have had at least one symtpomatic dog, some quite seriously painful.

MVD stats speak for themselves -- no improvement, and the situation is already very bad with that condition, now endemic in the breed with not enough people doing proper cardiologist checks or following the MVD protocol.

But as this topic generally has been discussed in great detail in many recent threads, and this does not add anything new to the discussion, I am going to close this thread.
