    And Karlin, no not a flow murmur but he said you never know with these things it could be worse than he thinks or he could be our loving pet for a long while yet.

    As far as neurologists in Scotland are concerned, you could always go to the top and take Elvis to the Dick Veterinary School in Edinburgh, because they are the people doing the major research into Mitral Valve Disease in Cavaliers. I've seen Prof Brendan Corcoran at various conferences and he seems a very nice person who would be sympathetic (as far as is possible!) to your financial concerns. I think your vet would need to give you a referral. But I think Prof Corcoran would be a good person just to go and talk to.

    Here is a list which was sent to me by Nicki only a week ago. I hope it helps.

    Lots of gentle hugs to your furry baby.

    Thanks so much this is so helpful!
    We have decided to keep him as we cannot give him back not knowing what would happen. We need to try our best. I thank you so much for all your kind words and look forward to sharing our journey with you all! Thanks so much again, I will keep you posted.

    Nadine and Elvis

    We will all be anxious to hear what a cardiologist tells you . Hopefully you will have a long long time with this little guy.

    It's very difficult to make a decision without full information about the condition.

    I used to see Dr S Brownlie BVM&S PhD CertSAC MRCVS Kileekie, Crosshill, Maybole, Ayrshire KA19 7PY 01655 740 510
    who is absolutely brilliant. She is a mobile cardiologist so may even visit a practice nearer to you. Because she works from home and is below the threshold there is no VAT which makes it cheaper. [that was the case a couple of years ago anyway]

    You are lucky though to be close to Glasgow vet school which is an amazing facility but would be rather more expensive they have a cardiologist Dr P Wotton BVSc PhD DVC MRCVS Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Glasgow, 464 Bearsden Road, Glasgow G61 1QH


    0141 330 5848
    0141 942 7215

    I have been to the hospital on quite a few occasions but only to see the neurologists, but the care we have received is 2nd to none and I have no reason to expect anything less from the cardio [unfortunately Dr Wotton was away when Kayleigh had issues whilst the hospital but the neuro did follow it up and write back to me, which was good. There was only a very weak pulse in her left leg but it was found to be ...Femoral artery occlusion (FAO) It causes no problem since other arteries take over for the blocked femoral artery. Diagnosis is made when the pulse on the inside of the dog’s rear leg(s) is found to be weak or absent.]

    I think you should try 'phoning rather than e-mailing the breeder, it's easier for them to ignore e-mails. Once you have a definite diagnosis you could write sending them a copy of the report by recorded delivery so you have proof they received it. It does not say a lot for the breeder that they are not interested in your puppy. [He is very sweet by the way!]

    Is he Kennel Club registered? If so he should be covered by the insurance plan.
