    I am keeping my fingers crossed for you. Molly was similar, she
    didn't show any of the classic symptoms at all, the first specialist
    we saw (joint spcialist) was wrong about her future (he said no hope) at least he diagnosed Molly with SM, which enabled me to make the decision to go to Clare. I am going to make Mollys latest report from her follow up
    scan available later, at least you will be able to see the information first
    hand. I am very hopeful for Ruby, you couldn't be in better hands.

    I didn't realise I was unable to attach to posts, but the main part of the reports reads: "Molly images are a little unusual an extensive pre-syrinx in 2 main areas (from C2-C4) and theracolumber (from T3 to L2) Syringomyelia centred over C2/C3 idsc space which is 3mm wide and is asymmetrical extending into the left spinal cord dorsal horn.

    We used the Cimetidene 3 times daily for 6 months, the next report read:

    The syringomyelia has not progressed and no evidence of pre-syrinx could be found! The SM had not progressed.

    We had problems keeping Mollys weight down, we have put her on a natural diet and she has lost a kilo which of course will have also helped.

    I hope this of interest and help! Molly won pretiest girl in a fun dog show a couple of weeks ago.

    Well that has certainly given me some hope- am I right in thinking that Molly was also quite far on when diagnosed? If so then to have not progressed any further really is fantastic news.
    And of course she won, she is beautiful with more courage than all the others put together!!

    Talking about this to one of the neurologists at Chester Gates, she said that Geoff Skerritt has found that zapping the syrinx with a CSF inhibitor (furosemide or similar) is only effective on dogs already displaying symptoms. It wouldn't have worked, for instance, on Oliver, who was diagnosed two years ago but had no symptoms (this was in some ways a relief to hear - I'd hate to feel we'd missed out on doing something that might have helped). Presumably (I'm guessing here!) it reduces the lateral spread of the syrinx, which is what causes the damage and pain. Oliver's syrinx was small and narrow.

    Molly was displaying symptons from a tiny pup, the confusion arose because she has a bad knee, hips and front shoulder ligaments. We almost got to the stage where she was unable to walk at all. This is why we orignally went to a specialist who dealt with these conditions. As soon as Molly was treated by Clare, everything changed for the better.
