    Default Syringomyelia

    Hi, this is my first time sending a message. We have a beautiful CKCS called Ruby as she is ruby and she is 1 1/2 years old and was diagnosed in March/April with Syringomyelia. Do many Cavaliers have this? Our vet seems to think that it is more common than realised.

    Thanks

    There is a whole section on this site dedicated to MVD & SM (syringomyelia). You'll find lots of support from others whose dogs have also been diagnosed. I believe it is considered the 2nd biggest health concern in Cavaliers, second only to MVD.

    Also check out Karlin's website, www.sm.cavaliertalk.com a site dedicated to information about the disorder.

    I'm so sorry your dog was diagnosed.
