    He became deaf about 5 years ago. He has a cataract in his right eye and has some several teeth over the years. Last year was diagnosed with stage 3 CHF and has been on meds for that since. He has been on Lasix for 2-3 years though. Started him on that when the murmur was noticed 3 years ago. Had some additional blood work done and has some signs of kidney disease but have been correcting that by changing his diet. Blood work numbers have improved with diet change. He eats and drinks well and general sleeps well. He is dealing with loss of muscle mass especially in his hips so walking is a struggle now. He also has been experiencing dealing with doggie dementia lately and starting to loose some balance. This has been a challenge for us to adjust in helping him with his daily life. We probably are struggling with this change more than he is. Still what a wonderful family member!!! Dreading that fateful day. Thanks for asking

    Just amazing, how fantastic to have a Cavalier reaching such an incredible age, truly a tribute to your loving care. It sounds like you are doing a really good job taking care of his health needs, he is very fortunate.

    Are you able to post some photos, it would be lovely to "meet" Killian
