    I think it's shocking that some breeders get away with breeding and not having all the pups checked... then are ignorant to the health issues saying it's 'unnecessary panic'.
    Hi Tanztanya,

    My first Cavalier Rudee lived to 12 tears and 9 months. She was on Vetmedin and furosemide from age 5 onwards.

    Taking on a rescue is a totally different journey and one I would recommend whole heartedly . It's all the little things that happen , that you don't expect from a rescue; like playing with a toy for the first time or walking proudly and confidently up to a stranger ........................ exhilarating moments!!! I can honestly say, with my hand on my heart, that taking a rescue Cavalier into your home has got to be one of the most rewarding experiences ever.

    Whatever you decide , I wish you and your (soon to be) new charge the very best

    I find it absolutely disgusting that anyone would make that misleading of a statement about Cavalier health. That's just so incredibly sad.

    On another note....I think it would be wonderful for you to get another dog. You were so good to Cookie, I just think of how much love you have to share with another dog. Good luck on finding your next compansion. Wishing you tons of luck.
