    Hi Everyone
    I have found a few websites in case anyone is interested. This first one is a Wikipedia one and explain the condition in humans http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primary...parathyroidism

    Wow, I didn't realize so many problems are related to the one condition. Poor little Toby. He'll be so much better after his surgery.

    Thats why its such a difficult one to call. I'm trying to anywhere on the internet that tells me how many dogs have been diagnosed with it in the last ten years or so.

    Unfortunately the op falls right before we go away, luckily Toby is stopping with my Aunt who also has a Cavvie and is at home all day. This means he will get all the attention he will need, plus I have arranged with the vets that any treatment that he needs while I am away will be put on my account so I can pay on my return to save my aunt having to fork out for anything. My Aunt has already been through a lot with her Cavvie after he had major hip surgery a few years ago.

    Hi Everyone
    Just to let you know I dropped Toby off at the vets this morning at 8:30am. He did the typically Cavalier thing of looking round when he was being lead out to the cage area giving me those really sad eyes. It was as if he was saying 'Mum, what you doing to me now?'. It was awful. The vet called to say he would be start the op at about 11:30, so just keeping my fingers crossed!

    Its awful this is the only time I have ever had to really coax him to go with the nurse! I think he senses its something big!!

    Toby is out of the op and recovering well.


    He is having to stop in for the next few days as his calcium level can get dangously low. The vets are currently trying to get as much calcium in as possible via a drip.

    I so want to visit him but I know it will only upset him and he will want to come home. Im going to call the vets first thing tomorrow to check he is ok and then he can come home soon.

    He will also have to be closely monitiored in relation to the low calcium level which will be quite weird seeing as the last few months we have been concerned with reducing it and now we are trying to raise it

    Anway will give you an update tomorrow, not really looking forward to a Cavvie less home tonight! But sooooo glad Toby is ok!


    Thanks to everyone for their lovely messages!!
