    Default Coat

    I have never experienced a Cavaliers coat to change texture after being neutered (regardless of age), but I have had two bitches whose coat changed colour after they were spayed - I had a blen whose ears lightened and by the time she went over the bridge they were looking pretty white. My current tri bitch has had some colour change on her back/base of tail area - she used to be a very jet black and after her spay this area turned more brownish that totally black.

    My original cavalier Ciara was a Black and Tan, she had a beautiful glossy and silky coat which changed to a woolly and dull coat after spaying and she grew coarse facial hair that needed regular trimming to stop her looking like Sylvester the cartoon cat .

    My Lucie got speyed at 18mths old. By 8 weeks after it she had gained 1.5 kilos and her fur was dull and whispy....and still is.
    I cut her JWB food down to 120g a day and increased her exercise and she still put weight on.Even now I have to be so careful with her food.She only needs to look at it and it goes onto her!
    As for her coat....i think i am fighting a loosing battle with that one. Her hair grows out the way and is now going curly(she has never been shaved).Its not as soft as it used to be...quite dry despite buying various shampoo's/conditioners.
    Although....i love her regardless!

    My Ruby's coat went very wooly after she was spayed, and was dull for a while, now its not too bad. She is still beautiful though.
