Puppy: Sir Oliver

Website: the daily puppy

Profile: I have a 2/1/2 king charles black and tan cav. He was rescued from a puppy mill in MO and was extremely ill for the first three months of his life. After all his meical care he responded well and became a happy and seemingly healthy puppy. I am a dog trainer and trained Sir Oliver in obedience and he passed his CGC when only one year old. He then went on to become a licensed Delta Society Therapy dog and worked for a year with the elderly and Alzheimers. He had some signs of SM a year ago by yelping for no apparant reason but after visiting with a canine ortho dr they could find nothing wrong but slight knee luxation. In December he started uncontrolled scratching, ripping out hair, rolling his head from side to side on the carpet, scratching and thumping on the ground and now biting his hind quarters as if he was stung by a bee. I have enrolled him in a grant study preformed at the Vet college in LI, Plainview NY and he will be going there April 21st for an MRI, CT, blood work , DNA etc to determine if he has SM and how severe. I will decide later if I elect to have the surgery but I am so upset I can't begin to tell you but as dog lovers I'm sure you know. Oliver is like my child and I hate seeing him this way with nothing I can do for him.If anyone has had the surgery for SM please let me know or if you are using any medication please let me know. His apt is scheduled for April 21. I am flying from FL to NY because this LI Vet hospital is on a grant and all tests including the MRI ad CT is just $500.00
