Firstly I am not contemplating surgery neither for Daisy nor myself but would like members thoughts on it ,as when I do read comments from people who have decided to go down that route it always seems more of an American way more so than here .
Daisy thankfully seems stable in fact to me she seems no different than when I didn't know she was suffering from SM and her only medication is Cimetidene but we take her back for an annual assessment in August but no matter what happens in the future I don't think I could ever go down the surgery route .
Ps I also mention Daisy's SM whenevere she goes to our Vets and ask there opinion re pain in case I
am missing any obvious signs but working with the theory that we know our dogs best she still seems
the same as Geoff Skerritt's comment last August ie "Daisy shows no sign of clinical Pain ".
