Has The Cavalier Breed a Future.?
Now that we know that nearly 100% of Cavaliers have MMVD at 10 years of Age,and this could mean that around 100,000 Cavaliers of to day at 10 years here in Britain could have MMVD,this from a Veterinary Article published by Researchers into the MMVD Problem in our Cavaliers, how many Cavalier Carriers also of MMVD will there be.
What I wonder is how will the EBV Scheme help Cavaliers with MMVD if all those Cavaliers are destined to be suffering from MMVD at 10 years of age.
Does this mean that nearly all Cavaliers will have MMVD or will be MMVD Carriers by the time they are 10 .
Any-body any thoughts about this Problem.
