For dogs with SM that scratch, is it always on the same side? Or do they scratch both? Oz, my tri male (7-1-07) was MRI'd at 11 months for SM because he had an episode of what I realize now was probably EFS and because I had just learned about SM when my 5 year old black and tan was diagnosed and had subsequent decompression surgery. Oz does scratch more than my others - on both ears. His MRI showed that he has the malformation, but at that point he had no syrinxes. Thanks,

Bev, along with Oliver (7 year old blen), Riley (now 6 year old bl & tan), Madison (4 year old ruby), and Oz (1 year old tri)
