The study on MVD have really taken a huge step in 2014. and 2015 seems even gaining more ground.
We had the first surgery success on that Japanese Chin in November, now this, and a week ago also this drug in development.

Still IMO the MVD protocol should not be stopped. Whatever success these items bring.

These developments for dealing with symptoms and repairing damage are great, but we still need to breed MVD out. Sadly, better treatment could simply make some breeders more careless.
