Cathy, I am so sorry to hear about Shelby's MRI. I know what you are going through, and even though we had a clear (no syrinx) MRI at 7 months, but confirmed Chiari malformation with crowding, Dottie had major symptoms, even after her procedure for PSOM.
As you know in my other posts, we are going with the omeprazole therapy for now and it seems to be working for her. I am not convinced that she hasn't developed a syrinx since her initial scan, but I don't see a need to re scan her just to find out, at least for now.
Pat, we have Petplan and they were wonderful throughout this whole ordeal. They covered our appointments, the MRI, the myringotomy and medications (after the co-pay/deductable that we had selected of course.) They even sent follow up emails and phone calls to see how Dottie was doing after treatment!
The guy that started PetPlan (at least in the U.S.) has a cavalier so they are partial to them there. I highly recommend them here.
Cathy, my thoughts and prayers will continue to go up for you and little Shelby, that she will be okay and not progress. Please keep us posted!
