    I have Jack- showed symptoms at 6 months, MRI'd at a little over 1 year old with mild to moderate CM and ? pre-syrinx. Has mild to moderate symptoms. He is currently 2 years,8 months old.
    Think that makes 15 so far.

    Bosco was diagnosed with SM at just over a year, he showed signs of tail chasing as a very young puppy which may or may not have been SM but he still does this a bit, and then air scratching from around 9 months or so. His main visible symptom is air scratching when walking but he often looks like he is experiencing pain.
    Does that make it 16?

    Default Rossi has SM

    My gorgeous blenheim boy Rossi has recently been diagnosed with SM. He has mild to moderate symptoms eg face rubbing and some scratching but has had a few severe pain episodes. He is 6 years old with a small syrinx.

    I can add three: Leo, Lily and Tansy.

    Three of my rescues rehomed through Cavalier Rescue also have it to some degree, thankfully quite mild in two cases.

    Tommy was scanned in 2005 when his symptoms were minimal. He is now 10.5 years & needs Lyrica to control his SM symptoms.

    Cavaliers our family partnership owned but are now dead are Monty ( confirmed by post-mortem ) Matthew ( confirmed by MRI )

    Grumpy Old William, Dillon, Murphy and Ryan were diagnosed by clinical symptoms.

    Bruce had SM symptoms but nobody knew about the condition when he was alive and Lindy, who lived until 16 years, scratched when touched in her last few years.

    Add one for sure and I'm thinking I got another one as much as it hurts to say that.

    Minnie May was diagnosed by MRI in April 2010. She had been having bouts of unexplained lameness together with inability to climb stairs or jump on furniture for about 2 years. She also had several other symptoms although none were excessive - scooting (anal glands checked and OK), shaking her body, rubbing head on floor, rubbing her body against furniture and legs, head shyness. She rarely scratched and has never air scratched. She is being kept pretty comfortable at the moment on Lyrica, Zitac and Trocoxil.
