    Thumbs up Cardio/CERF Clinic - Illinois: July 10, 2010

    For all CavalierTalk members in the Chicago/Illinois area:
    The Greater Chicago Cavalier Rescue has organized its annual heart and eye clinic in DeKalb, Illinois. For only $35/Cavalier per test (if you pre-register, I think it's $40/dog for walk-ins) you can get your Cavalier's heart checked by a Board certified cardiologist (Dr. Michael Luethy) and eyes checked by Dr. Paul Gerding. This is a great event and an inexpensive way to have your Cavalier's heart and eyes checked. I will be taking Miles and Truman in for their annual checks, and I will also be working at the registration table from 12:00-2:00, so if you come to the event stop by and say "hi"!

    Here is the information for the clinics - I recommend contacting Helen Cordell, President of GCCR, if you would like to register since it's coming up so soon. I hope to see you there!

    Registrations for the heart and eye clinics this coming Saturday are
    officially closed but there are still a bunch of openings. The heart
    and eye clinic with Board certified specialists are an inexpensive
    way to get a good reading on your Cavalier's health. Here are the details:

    Date: Saturday, July 10

    Times: 10 am to 3 pm
    Location: Northern Illinois Convocation Center in DeKalb, IL
    Cost per clinic per dog: $35

    There's more information on our GCCR website:
    www.gccavalierrescue.org. I'd be happy to accept your last minute
    registration by phone and collect later. Call me at 630-553-2810.

    Hope to see you!

    Thanks for asking! I think we had about 72 cardio appts and 65 CERF appts. Most were Cavaliers - I'd say 75% Cavaliers.

    My boys went to the cardio clinic; Truman was totally clear, but Miles has a systolic click (he's 3.5 yrs old, and has been clear the last 2 years). The cardiologist said there's nothing that I should be doing, it may turn into a murmer at some point, it may not. I already started him on heart, instead of the regular organ meat I feed, since it contains a high amount of CoQ10. I'll take them back next year to get checked again, fingers crossed it doesn't progress
