    Default Dry Eye Curly Coat Cavalier "Flossy"in the Daily M

    So have you seen Flossy? ....

    she is my friends Cavalier who sadly has Dry Eye Curly Coat, she is in the Daily Mirror today with a lovely large colour photograh .....at last some publicity which should help to raise awareness of this genetic disorder......her mummy told me this morning when we spoke that there will also be a piece on the TV tonight as well... keep a watch out!

    Flossy like my late Honey, who also suffered with this condition is receiving as did Honey, her treatment from the Animal Health Trust in the U.K. which is a fantastic place for animal health.

    Flossy you are so beautiful

    Alison.

    Yeah I saw Flossie in the paper today; she looks so cute in her doggles and top.

    Got up this morning and ordered to look at page 15 before I did anything else.

    She's the most adorable thing ever. I saved the picture and made her the wallpaper on my computer at home. Shh- don't tell Spence.

    Oh bless her - I was lucky enough to meet Flossy a few weeks ago, she is such a beautiful girl and has one of the best doggie Mommies in the World - Diana is very dedicated, which is essential when managing this condition.

    Alison's Honey also suffered with this, and I remember many conversations about the care that Honey was receiving - perhaps Alison you'd like to share a bit more about what is involved?

    It was a tribute to Alison's care -and to Diana's for Flossy - that Honey was able to enjoy a good quality of life. Sadly many affected dogs go blind.

    It's not just the eyes and "strange" coat - it's a very open, coarse, stiff coat, more like a Terrier's coat. The affected dogs also have problems with their pads and their nails

    It's wonderful to see this conditon being recognised...many vets - and breeders - are not aware of it at all.
    There is some more information here

    I speak to Diana about Flossie, so it was great to see another picture of her, she is a real cutie and Diana is so lovely.

    Daisy has Dry Eye/Curly Coat as well, it is hard to manage, but Diana is very supportive and helpful. It is a hard situation to be in, but i give Daisy everything i can, including several medicines every day, she just needs extra care but i love daisy very much. Her skin is one of the worst things, it is so dry and of course, her eyes are bad. I look at her feet every day to check that they are ok too.

    what a great picture---flossy looks like a little stuffed dog toy in the clothes and goggles

    that's wonderful about the publicity for the condition---i know that DE/CC is rare, but the fact that 2 of our board members have it shows that it's not as 'rare' as one might think.

    i hope that this will lead to more networking and support emma
