Important .....Volunteers wanted
As many here will know Tania and I co-ordinate a scheme that helps and encourages cavalier owners to volunteer their dogs for post-mortem and cell tissue donation when they die.
We make the arrangements, pay the costs and make sure the individually cremated ashes are safely returned to the owner.
It is possible that there may soon be a little cavalier body that will need transporting from a veterinary practice near Clacton on Sea to Stansted Motorway Services.
I or another volunteer would then relay the little dog on to Cambridge Vet. Hospital for post-mortem.
I know that this is a subject that makes many people uneasy, but the samples of tissue obtained from these much loved pets are vital for research projects into the diseases that affect cavaliers. It is really really important.

If you think you may be able to help with the relay........ please PM me or Tania, or phone one of us on the numbers shown on that link.
