SM In Cavaliers - Lack of Knowledge
Our vets have a brand new computer system.
When you take your dog for a consultation, they print off lots of health info. for the breed. Listed are the most common health problems in the particular breed.
So, for Cavs they listed firstly MVD (fair enough), then eye problems, ear problems, diabetes and various other problems but NO MENTION AT ALL OF SM.
I asked the vet why Syringo wasn't mentioned - apparently it's mass-produced software for the veterinary business. She said that obviously the condition wasn't common enough in Cavaliers for it to be included in the software, although she acknowledged it was getting more common ????
Amazing, isn't it?
