hi - am pleased you came back - was worrying about the wee lad

syringomyelia is a cyst that grows in the spinal area and presses on nerves - it is genetic in ckcs - lots of work has been done both here and in the states to try and isolate the genetic coding - contact your breed club - they will have lots of information - is the vet going to do a MRI scan?

poor lad - he is very young for this to start - have you contacted your breeder? it is important that s/he knows
 :(

http://www.thecavalierclub.co.uk/health/syringo/news/jan04.html
the club does have lots of info - and they do a  newsletter


Kizz Syringomyelia is actually a malformation of the skull which allows the brain to herinate out of the skull blocking the spinal column & preventing the Cerbral Fluid from draining out of the skull, this causes sphinx to form in the spinal column-it has nothiong at all to do with cysts on the spine. The syptoms can start as young as under six months  :(

Jules-it is not the end of the world there is medication to relieve the symptoms & the pain when it occurs. From your first post I thought it was SM especially as you have a Cavalier(it does occur in other breeds but no one talks about it except in Cavaliers)

You might want to join this support group http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/ArnoldChiari_dogs/

Research is being done to map the whole Genome of the Cavalier in order to find the markers genes for SM(it's a polygenetic condition) & MVD

in older dogs it can be the result of obstruction of the cerebrospinal fluid caused by cysts - but yes otherwise in young dogs as you say

hi

I just wanted to send hugs and  :-* to your baby and you, and I hope you find a treatment that works well for him.  sorry, I've nothing practical to advise, apart from I believe this board is great - I've not posted much at all, tend to lurk, but when I want advice with my 2 Cavvies, they've been great.

Thinking of you both

Mrs L
