    So sorry to hear this news

    Poor Abbey - always hard to make these decisions but for me it would come down to quality of life, if she is having a substantial amount of pain from the eye and this can't be managed, the either I would opt for surgery or I would make the dreadful decision to let her go - quality of life is FAR more important than quantity and no animal should be allowed to suffer

    Her eye is getting better. We're exhausted as we're having to do a minimum of 5 different meds-drops every 6 hrs which is at midnight and then 6 a.m. and noon and 6 p.m. Today she had so much trouble getting up and staying up and my son blurted out that you need to put her down. Broke my heart to hear that but it's always in the back of my mind. I truly cheerish every day with her.

    Oh Margaret. The neuro said I would know when it was time and I truly don't think it is but I don't think it will be much longer either unless this progression slows down. She has changed so dang much in the past year. We put these dang wood floors in because of the dogs and they are so hard on her. I think I'm going to buy alot of scatter rugs which are washable and put where her paws will always be on carpet and that will help tremendously. She is still happy so I don't think it's time. I love this breed so dang much but I will never ever again own a cavalier after these three leave us. This disease just rips my heart out.

    I really feel for you and I am in tears reading your post. Mine are just in the early stages of CM/SM but it is heartbreaking seeing them in pain or discomfort. Before mine showed any symptoms and were diagnosed I used to read other peoples posts on here but it doesn’t prepare you for what is to come. I am very grateful for the people on here that helped me, I don’t know what I would do without their advice but like you said I don’t think I could have any more Cavaliers in the future. It breaks your heart every day. For me it’s like sitting on a time bomb.
