    Have you spoken to Clare about the fact that Dylan isn't neutered? I know a number of neurologists who have recommended that people neuter their male SM dogs (in particular) because they get far more worked up and excited when intact and this of course causes the CSF to circulate faster which is what contributes to the formation of syrinxes and pain. Unless there's a serious reason why he cannot be neutered, I would think it might help with pain for him to have a neuter done. Know three dogs off the top of my head who have had this strongly urged by their neurologist.

    I concur with Karlin's thoughts above!

    I will be talking to Clare about it when I see her. The plan is Dylan will be referred the same day as Poppy.

    Clare has asked for part of Poppy's ovary to be sent to her. It's all very interesting. She wants Rna (Ribonucleic acid) from it. Rna helps in the manufacture of proteins in the cell. It basically copies genes and transfers them. (credit to Sinead for that information)

    The problem is Clare is back on Tuesday and the spay is booked Wednesday. This means not enough time for delivery of the pot to carry the ovary. The spay may be postponed a few days.

    Poppy's spay is postponed to Monday week, that's the 16th. So we are all set. This gives Clare enough time to contact my vet about the ovary. I can stop worrying for now.

    hope that helps!

    Hi Pauline, Jessie was spayed about 3 weeks ago and to be honest you'd never know she'd been done. I was amazed at how quickly she got back to normal. She was very sleepy the evening when she came home, next day a little brighter and by the 3rd day back to her crazy self. She had no bucket hat and I bought some cheap baby grows (Asda 2) for her to ware but she wouldn't keep them on, but that's her. I'm sure she will be fine. I have to say the 95 is a bargan, I paid 169.
