    So very, very much that I could say about this, but it's best if I just keep my mouth shut.

    I will say that I'm sure that my own blood pressure shot up about 30 points from the time I began reading this until the time I finished reading it.

    I do have his book in my vet text library and have read it from cover to cover:

    http://www.amazon.com/Notes-Cardiore.../dp/1405122641

    This textbook far more comprehensive IMO, and I highly recommend it:

    http://www.amazon.com/Manual-Canine-...2967305&sr=1-1

    And a book out of print and outdated but a wonderful resource nonetheless:

    http://www.amazon.com/Small-Animal-C...2967410&sr=1-1

    It would be wonderful if a new edition of this last book would be published as it is very easy to understand and has very practical information.

    Pat:

    Margaret's Cavalier Tissue Collection project (which is where the idea for tissue collection began as a formal scheme a couple of years ago) has greatly benefitted this particular research. I believe this project received heart tissue from my Lucy, donated via Margaret's scheme.

    Anyone interested can find information on the Collection scheme pinned in the MVD forum -- tissues benefit several research projects on MVD, SM and other cavalier health issues.

    This might help. Murder of a Heart Valve An Open and Shut Case. The Cavalier feature quite heavily as you would expect. Brendan Corcoran presents this so we can all understand.

    That's a great lecture. Very interesting, my PhD research has been partly on the changes in endothelial cells and collagens in the brain during disease. So it's very interesting to see to see MVD described as driven by these same changes in the heart. I generally regard cardiac disease as completely beyond the scope of my knowledge.

    There's info on Clare Rusbridge's site too http://www.veterinary-neurologist.co...ection_scheme/

    Many pet owners have very kindly donated their dogs for this research through the scheme Karlin mentions above - including some of our forum members.

    Also a lot of the money raised to cover the costs of the scheme has been raised by pet owners, including our very own Calendars!! So your support for our calendars http://www.cavaliertalk.com/forums/f...ar-competition has contributed to this research, thank you very much.

    The Cavalier Matters charity [set up and run by our Tania] has made considerable contributions to the scheme too - money raised by the stands at dog shows such as Crufts, Discover Doges; and through the Cavalier Gift shop http://cavalier-gift-shop.org/index.php


    It is really good to be able to see the results of our efforts, and to know that this is a way that pet owners and Cavalier Club members and breeders have worked together to help our beloved breed.
