As in case of many - I have discovered this fab site while surfing for moral support. I have a gorgeous black and tan cavi called Tilly - she is just 18 months old. She has had numerous problems including luxating patellae - but the latest and most terrifying is a diagnosis of SM through MRI.
We are just devastated - Tilly is (as are all cavis) the most sweet girl ever. Her symptoms are pretty bad and frequent - air scratching, rubbing face along floor, rubbing against furniture, ataxia ... all of which occur daily if not hourly. Her pain 'seems' to be under control - I say that but she pants and paces alot however is not screaming out as much. Shes on daily Rimadyl and we are considering other options.
Can anyone please, please let me know how they are finding other drugs or treatments. We are seeing a Neurologist next week. Thank you so much for any guidance anyone can offer - feeling shell shocked.
