Avatar n tn I have an eight month old, female, cavalier king charles spaniel who just experienced her first "doggy period". It ended about a week and a half ago, and since then I've noticed that she now has a terrible stench! I've bathed her numerous times, however the smell of dead animal keeps coming back. Is there something wrong with her or is this normal?
Avatar m tn Could this also be caused by Protopic use.my dog is a 4 yr 6 mth cavalier king charles spaniel and now coincidentally also suffers from malassezia since the use of Protopic since May this year. I appreciate any help.
Avatar n tn My father is looking to buy a puppy that is a beagle and king Charles cavalier mix. I'm aware that up to 50% of cavaliers have a disease called syringomyelia where their heads are too small for their brains. This is apparently a painful and debilitating disease. I also know that cavaliers are also prone to valve problems and heart murmers. My father wanted to buy a mutt to try and decrease the likelihood of buying an animal that would suffer from genetic diseases.
Avatar n tn I have just bought a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is 7 months old. When he first came to us he was very nervous about everything including noises and people. He seems to have settled down in the last 2 weeks but still seems to bark and growl at small children and is nervous of strangers. We have had a nephew of ours who is a toddler who is very loud and enthousiastic and could have scared the puppy in this initial stage.
712347 tn?1229547525 I have a cavalier king charles she is just 1 year old and they have performed a tick serology and says she has lymes. The doctor perscribed Doxycyline .5ml orally twice a day. Is this going to have any side affects and what should I expect she is only 17 lbs.
Avatar n tn Yes, a cavachon is a mix between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and a Brichon Frise, and may I say............. adorable.
734574 tn?1231940103 I have a 2 1/2 year old male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He has been housebroken since he was about a year old. Four months ago we got another Cavalier who is practically housebroken and has an accident a couple times a month now, but tells us when he needs to go out. Recently, our older dog has begun peeing and pooping in the house. The first time he peed he did it in one spot like he does outside, now he is walking and peeing. The only time he poops is when the younger one is around.

620048 tn?1358018235 She is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and she is so adorable, loving and just the best. She is doing really well and we have spoiled her so much. She never leaves my side. Its so interesting getting a dog that is not a puppy, you have so much to learn about them since between birth and 8 yrs they have been thru things that we don't know about. But I am enjoying it... Will be watching this group more now.
Avatar n tn my dog alexi just started a few days ago sleeping and I have to carry him outside to make. He is 13 years old and he is a Cavalier King Charles. Today he does not want to eat. He cannot stand up without help, and when he wakes up he looks around like he cannot see. When he is out he will not see where he is going. Please give me some advice I love him.
Avatar m tn I have a Cavalier King Charles about a month ago he has had leaks, threw up, barely eats, recently threw up a solid brown mass, and is restless. I got blood work, xrays, and CT-scans done, but everything came out negative for any thing wrong...I also went to 3 different vets and they are also clueless on what is the cause, and I was hoping someone out there would know..The vets prescribed nausea medicine and even steroids but nothing seem to be working, and today he collapsed when he was peeing.
620048 tn?1358018235 We have a Cavalier King Charles Spanial that was a rescue dog...she is 17 lbs now and we only feed her one cup of dry dog food and and 2 -3 doggy snacks a day plus a few snacks of a plain rice cake. She hasn't been getting a lot of exercises either. I am not sure what else to do to really get her weight down. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
1782268 tn?1314719680 I have a 10 year old Cavalier King Charles taht has had some health issues, but is ok right now. He has just started losiing a lot of hair on his back. What could be the cause of this hair loss?
Avatar m tn I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that was born with extra fluid beneath the skin around her abdomen. The fluid (clear, pale yellow like plasma) has created a loose skin pocket. The accumulation is slowing down (today is day 3) and I hope it will correct itself and the puppy will grow into it's loose skin. She is growing, nursing, and eliminating waste like the rest of her litter mates and her energy level is the same. Her heart sounds the same as well. Any ideas?

Avatar n tn We have a king charles cavalier spaniel she is pees outside ...but lately after a long walk she returns home and makes #2 inside the home right after walking. How do we get her to do everything outside?? Please advice!!
Avatar f tn Hi, like Selma I read about King Charles spaniels in my search for CM info. Are you saying that surgery on *dogs* has a poor outcome? If so, I think you have to accept that you have a handicapped dog--but the good news is that you get to spoil her as much as you want!
134578 tn?1578157483 My dog, a Pomeranian-Chihuahua cross, can get growly when nervous. The only time I've boarded her is with a breeder of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels whose dogs were all around, and my dog was a jerk for the first few days she was there. Didn't bite, but called lots of audibles and made threatening snappish barks.
Avatar n tn My 7 month old cavalier king charles is on her first doggy period, has been for a week now, but her vagina seems excessiveky swollen. Dou you think it could be a prolapse?

Avatar n tn we have been together for 2 years and have started talking about starting our own family, we already have a addition which is a cavalier king charles cavalier, her name is Lucy Lou.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I hope surgery goes well for Poppy. I am sure it will, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are a gorgeous breed but according to my daughter they are prone to stones but surgery is usually safe and easy for this. So try not to worry too much, B.T.W. my daughter is head vet nurse for a very busy animal hospital and she has had extra training in surgery/theatre and radiology, she is always doing extra courses.
Avatar f tn Hi- we have a almost 6 month old King Charles Cavelier Spaniel that went in today to be neutered. The vet called me and told me her platelets were low at around 100,000. she said that was on the manual count and on the regular CBC it was lower 60,000-80,000. she would not do surgery on her and stated they had to be at least 200,000.
