Bonnie The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has an MRI

Bonnie is an 8-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She was having regular episodes of pain and her owner was very worried about her.

It was decided that the best thing for Bonnie, would be to send her for an MRI scan. This was done 3 weeks ago.

This confirmed that she was suffering from a condition known as Syringomyelia. This is a common enough condition in Cavaliers. It is a disorder of the spinal cord and was causing her severe pain. She subsequently went on to have brain surgery. She was back at the clinic today for a check up and is 100% back to normal and her owner is very pleased with the results.

Cases such as Bonnie’s are rare enough for us to treat here at the Animal Hospital and we are all glad that Bonnie has made a great recovery.
