I am new, I live in North Carolina and thrilled to find this forum. I like the rest of you have fallen in love with the Cavalier. I have a 16 month old cavalier that is beautiful. I searched to find a good breeder and also searched information about health issues. I just found out in Jan. My boy(Rudy) has luxating patellas. One is a grade 1 and the other is a 2. He isn't showing any signs except with rough play with a visiting dog he may show signs of a stiffer back leg for a minute or two. The vet put him on Synovi 3, C,E, and A vit. She wants me to get him in a trot going up hill for 10min. 2x a day. She thinks he will have to have surgery at some point but wants to try this for a while. I would appreciate any advice.
