    Default Thanks from me and Scooby

    Hi ,

    Yes scooby had a great day , he spent it with me , we had a small walk in the morning , kisses and cuddles all day , treats and then he was treated to chicken dinner for his tea.

    He went to bed with a smile on his face and a full tummy

    We live in the now and not the future with him and he has proved the vets wrong who wrote him off last year , hes my little fighter.

    Default Thanks - He still capable of giving his mum a scare.....

    Hi,

    Thanks everyone for scooby's birthday wishes.......

    We were awoken at 6am this morning with scooby yelping in the kitchen , me and my husband bolted down stairs to find scooby in his bed looking very stressed and he had wet his bed.......

    His breathing was laboured so I quickly calmed him down and administered his heart medication to help him. Previously when this has happened he has quickly had a syncope episode but fortunately he didnt this time and I hope its thanks to his new medication hes been on for about 6 weeks.

    Within another 40 minutes he had managed to be persuaded from his bed and my husband went outside with him while he had a wee. Then he came back in and wanted a biscuit and rodeo bar so I knew he was ok....

    I called the vet and he thinks it was triggered by a muscle spasm which is common in older cavaliers around their hips/legs and this would have caused him pain and stress. I have been watching him like a hawk all day and probably wont sleep tonight,,,,

    Fingers crossed hes ok.......

    Sharon and Scooby....

    Wow, this has been an emotional thread to read.

    I have lost 2 dogs to MVD with the second one, although on medication deteriorated very rapidly. I just wish I or the vet that was trying to help him at the time knew about Vetmedin ..... seems like the miracle drug for dogs with MVD.

    With my first Cav who went on to the ripe age of 15 ... it was a roller coaster ride. Waking each morning and holding your breath until you are sure she is breathing, waking her up from naps when you don't see her breathing (the getting that 'why did you wake me up look'), when coming home heaving a huge sigh of relief when you see her waiting with tail wagging when you open the door ......

    Seems you really have the right attitude in living each day as it comes and showering Scooby with love .....

    I sincerely hope you have lots more time with your boy .....

    Default Latest on Scooby - He has lost his bark......

    Hi everyone,

    The latest on my lad scooby is he is still stable at the moment , his cough has gone quite nasty and is a little more frequent.

    The one thing I have noticed is that he doesn't bark anymore????? I dont think he can because his cough and breathing wont support it........

    Iam so glad he is still here and hes still happy and eating well , its just every little bit of him I lose like his bark is MVD taking one more part of his personality....

    He still gives great kisses and cuddles so its not taken that from him

    Sharon and Scooby XXX
