Hello I have been reading this forum for the last couple of years but have not been brave enough to post a message until now. My Cavalier 'Pepper' was diagnosed with severe SM via an MRI scan when she was 18 months old. She will be 6 in May. We have had our ups and downs over the years and this last spell of snowy weather was quite hard for her but generally speaking she is a brave happy little dog. The symptoms she has are being well controlled at the moment by her medication Gabapentin and Prednisolone. We still go for small walks, she still jumps on the furniture and chases her toys. The main reason for my post is to say a big thank you to everyone because your posts and advice have really helped me and Pepper over the years. You have all made a real difference.
