Cavalier Health Web Site
Ruby and Sydney here,
Sydney and I are always trying to educate our Mom and Dad on our health issues so they can then better educate their veterinarian on particular Cavalier health issues. Although many of you Cavalier owners probably already know about this site, a good reference for the multitude of health issues that affect us Cavaliers is www.cavalierhealth.org This site is sponsored by a company called the Blenheim Company and this is how they describe themselves on their web site.
CavalierHealth.org is dedicated to providing easy Internet access to factual information about the health of and severe genetic health disorders which afflict the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
CavalierHealth.org is offered as a public service by the Blenheim Company, an independent organization which has been dedicated to the welfare and health of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels since the 1970s. The Blenheim Company has been providing breed health information, as a service to Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and their owners in the United States and Canada, since 1998 and has been providing this website since 2001.
The Blenheim Company is headquartered in the State of Florida, USA.
Good information but it is information only. The web site tells visitors that the site is not to be used as a diagnostic and self treatment tool and to check with their veterinarian on any health issue that might affect their Cavalier. However, education is a tool and it allows you to interact with your veterinarian and educate him or her on the health issues that can sometimes afflict we lovely Cavaliers so they can better monitor our health and longevity.

That's a great site--I'd seen it before, but forgot about it. Need to bookmark it for future reference!
Thanks Ruby and Sydney!
