    Exclamation Urgent advice needed, please read.

    Dylan is at the vets now waiting for a wobbly tooth to be taken out and for his teeth to be descaled. Vet just rang me to say the anaesthetic puts pressure on the brain and, as Dylan has SM, he's not happy to put him under, he said he might not wake up. We talked it over and I said many dogs with SM have to have anaesthetic for their MRI, he then said lets go ahead then. I told him to hold fire until I spoke to Clare Rusbridge.

    I'm waiting for Clare Rusbridge to ring me back, it's her day off.

    Have any of you been told the anaesthetic puts pressure on the brain?

    I would rather someone else give you advice especially from Dr. Rusbridge, but I've never heard that. I think with anesthesia there is always a risk but I don't think from that.

    Ella had a second MRI with no problems. I would think Dr. Rusbridge wouldn't recommend multiple MRI if that were the case.

    Please get other people's input b/c o could be wrong

    So did ella from 2nd MRI and she had severe SM. I also know that many who had surgery for SM have 6 month follow up MRI. I think that's standard with LIVS

    Thank you so much for getting back to me so quick ladies. Clare Rusbridge was emailed by Stone Lion and, bless her, she rang me within 5 minutes, she's amazing She said he's fine to have an aneastetic. She said dental health is so important in a Cavalier. Most important detail however was to give both Poppy and Dylan and kiss from Clare

    So I just rang the vets again and managed to discuss how I want Dylan to be positioned during surgery and when I took him in this morning, I showed the nurses how to pick him up.

    Now to keep myself busy

    Oh goodness Pauline, some vets really know how to press the "panic" button in us. Guess he was just erring on the safe side. Clare is certainly marvellous, with all the dogs she has in her care she always makes you feel that yours is very special (which of course they are).

    Hope Dylan's dental goes OK.
    Cinders had a dental done earlier in the year when she had some back Xrays done and had 3 teeth removed, and she is 11 with MVD. My vet said the modern anaesthetics are so much better now and she was up and about within a couple of hours of having the procedure done.

    Give Dylan a big from us all when he comes home.

    Sorry you had such a scare Can I suggest you print off the stuff from SM Cavalier and Clare's site to take in to your vets as they seem to have little or no understanding of SM?


    Hope Dylan is ok now.
