You are right Anne, all cavalier research projects are good causes and should be supported.
Dr McGonnell, who heads the FTR project gave a talk at the Cavalier Club health Day last November, where she confirmed that every cavalier foetus she had received had Chiari-like malformation and spoke about the abnormal bone development in the cavalier skull.
For those interested, I blogged what I had noted down of her talk.............
I am not sure if these findings have been published yet?
Cavaliers......Faith, The Ginger Tank and Woody.
Japanese Chins.... Dandy, Benny, Bridgette and Hana.
Remembered with love......... Tommy Tuppence and Fonzi
