​​​​​​​    GREAT NEWS
   TO ALL OUR CAVALIER PET PARENTS WHOSE
FUR BABIES SUFFER
FROM THE TERRIBLE INHERITED MVD DISEASE!


Dr. Simon Swift is now at UF-Veterinary Hospital in Gainsville.  H will be doing heart surgeries here in the U.S. which up to now has only been done in Japan and the U.K.  He already has 6 patients.  Some of our Cavalier members have gone to his workshop in Gainsville.

Obviously this surgery is very expensive,(but cheaper then flying to the UK or Japan) but it may be covered under your pet insurance if you have it.  For more information, you can contact UF-Gainsville at 352-392-2235.

Hopefully none of your fur babies will need this surgery. But this is exciting news!

As a side note: If you are purchasing your eds from your vet, you may want to check out Lambert Pet Pharmacy, 1-800-344-6337.  for discounted prices. 







Please sign up for the St. Patrick's Day Parade will be held on March 17th at 3:00 pm in Spanish Springs.  You may walk with your Cavaliers or Use your golf cart.  Please contact Mike Nugent, [email protected]t to order a pass for your golf cart.
