I was chatting to my vet some months ago about Cav health issues in general and SM in particular (not in relation to my dog) She was genuinely interested in becoming better informed, which I thought was brilliant. I emailed her a couple of links from this site to get her started.
She has since moved away to another surgery, but has emailed me today to say that she thinks she has just come across her first case of SM in a Cavalier and obviously wants to do her very best for the dog and most importantly, thoroughly understand exactly what she is dealing with.
She lost the links that I gave her when she moved surgeries and I'm not sure that the info that I gave her was comprehensive enough anyway, as I'm only just learning about SM, and I'm certainly not a vet!
Can anyone who really knows their stuff about SM, provide me with the info that she requires please?
I think it's fantastic that she is prepared to become better informed about the condition and that she is receptive to the idea that there is always more to learn in order to do the very best for your patients. She is hoping
to move back to our area in the future to practice and I sincerely hope that she does. Sadly, none of us ever know if our dog may be the next SM victim and I would very much like to be registered with a vet that knows and understands this condition.
I would really appreciate any help, as I would like to forward any info to her as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance
