December Molly was diagnosed with sm. The original specialist more or less wrote her off. We quickly changed specialists to Clare Rusbridge who has given us a lot of hope. Molly has been taken off the garbapentin (carefully), we are now slowly withdrawing the Rymadil. She will stay on the Cimetidene probably for life. If I understand things correctly, Clare has not treated a dog at such an early stage. Molly has syrinxs on her neck and a very large pre-syrix on her spine. We are watching her carefully and she will have another MRI in 6 months time. This proves finding someone who understands this terrible disease is just so important.
Molly is bouncy and full of life. I found some nice soft fleece harnesses for both Molly and Dougall which hopefully will make walking easier.
Molly was in a DVD and a book last year. If she is well enough, we have
been told she can be Diva again this year.
