I took my King Charles Cavalier Spaniel to the vet the other day for his regular vaccinations and yearly check-up. He has always been a happy healthy little dog and I didn’t have any concerns taking him in. Unfortunately as the vet checked his heart he found that our little dog has a heart problem. Sadly,although this would be operable in humans, it is not operable in dogs.
Our dear little dog now has a rather uncertain future. This condition is common in cavvies and is something I was not really aware of before. We did obtain him from a registered breeder and so I thought we would avoid such problems.
Needless to say the whole family is very sad about this and we are hoping he won’t have too many problems or suffer. I can’t even imagine the day that we will have to say goodbye to him.
