Hi everyone! I am first time cavalier owner. Lexie came to us last December. She is a 13lb 1 yr old blenheim girl. We also have a toy poodle and a rott/boxer mix!
As a child I loved the English Toy Spaniel in the World Book Encyclopedia and always wanted one. Then I saw the Cavalier and that was it!
I have to admit I checked out the health problems before I bought Lexie and was not too worried about the heart problems,read that SM was very rare and now that I have read the entries on this web-site I am feeling pretty scared. Good thing we have had Lexie all these months and are attached!
I do have some questions for those who have had Cavaliers for a while.
Do they seem to be more food sensitive or is it just mine? Lexie can't eat Iams at all. Most of the more expensive foods I have tried have not worked. (Loose stools!) She has to be switched VERY slowly, a couple of pieces of food added at a time. Is there any special food that works better for cavaliers?
Hope to be able to post a picture soon. She is the cutest!
