    Default Not good news for Rosie

    Rosie was scanned today and unfortunately it isnít good news. But I knew this deep down already. The vet is sending the scan to Clare Rusbridge but he said that she is worse than Harley & Ebony. She has a wide syrinxe in her neck and it goes all the way down her spine.

    I should have listened to my gut instinct years ago, but she used to suffer with ear & skin problems.

    I just canít believe all three of mine age 4,5 & 6 have got it.

    Sabby, I am so sorry. This dreadful condition is relentless, and it is so unfair.
    My thoughts are with you. Sending you all hugs.

    Oh, darn it. Although you knew it deep down. I can't believe you got a triple whammy either. It's not true either that misery loves company. All of us with SM dogs would love to never hear of another dog with SM ever again. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Rosie - and with Harley and Ebony.

    Sabby, words fail me right now. I am so, so sorry you have received this awful news I just hate that another beloved cavalier has to have this horrible disease. You are the best Mom to Rosie, Harley and Ebony. Sending you lots of love and hugs

    This is awful news. Three our three just goes to show how many cavaliers are effected. I'm sorry you AND your dogs are living with this....BUT remember LIVING, treat as best you can with a lot of hope, medications, and God's grace I hope you share many more healthy days than bad......

    Oh no, Sabby; I am so sorry to hear that. I hope you and Clare can work out a good management strategy and she does fine on that. Thinking of you and Rosie.

    I am so sorry that Rosie has this too Sabby. Life is so unfair sometimes.

    I agree with Karlin that good management strategies are available. My boy hasn't seen Clare, but my vet has used her treatment matrix to get him back to a normal happy life. Not bad for an almost ten year old, so hope springs eternal.
