Hi, I live in the Netherlands and over here there is a big discussion going on about a breedingstop. There are 2 organisations that want a breedingstop for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Because they say that 98% worldwide the cavalier has CM and Syringomeylia. Now I'm against a breedingstop because, you gonna push the cavalier in a black breeding circuit. Where there is no controle over. I'm for a very strickt breedingproces, were is MRIscan a must. Bad result, negative breedingadvise, no pedigree. The parent must be scanned at an age of 2 and a half, then te skal is fulgrown. Also the hart and patella must be checked. How is it in the US with the scanning for Chiari Malformation an Syringomeylia, for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel?
