Coco is sensitive to touch, especially in the lumbar region because of this and she also yelped a few times, I took her to Dr. Clare Rusbridge who has confirmed the following:-
Coco has sligh Scoliosis with a tendancy to hold her head slightly down, she also has pelvice limb ataxia and mild paraparesis (weakness or partial paralysis in her lower limbs)
We have started Coco on Gabapentin 100mgms twice per day.
Coco is a lovely little dog, whoever owned her, spoilt her and clearly loved her.
It really is quite depressing. These poor Cavaliers are now at a crisis point and there seems to be no urgency to breed away from these devastating diseases.
The breeders should be made to health test, if they don't the Kennel should now refuse registration.
