How common is syringomyelia in Cavalier King Charles?

The incidence of CM in the CKCS breed is an estimated 95% and current studies suggest that SM is present in more than 50% of dogs with CM (7) with approximately 35% of affected dogs exhibiting clinical signs (2).

How long can a cavalier live with syringomyelia?

Study of a small case series (14 CKCS) managed conservatively for neuropathic pain suggested that 36% were eventually euthanatized as a consequence of uncontrolled pain. However 43% of the group survived to be greater than 9 years of age (average life expectancy for a CKCS is 10.

Does my Cavalier has syringomyelia?

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels will typically show clinical signs between six months and three years of age. Not all dogs with syringomyelia will show signs of pain or other clinical symptoms, and so the presence of syringomyelia can be an incidental finding on an MRI scan.

How do you test for syringomyelia in dogs?

The most effective way to diagnose SM is an MRI scan of the spinal column and brain. Your dog will need to be put under general anesthesia during the procedure and will be given oxygen and fluids. The results should indicate pockets filled with spinal fluid throughout the spinal column if your dog has SM.

How fast does syringomyelia progress in dogs?

The rate of progression of the disease is very variable. The clinical course may be acute (rapid onset) or it may progress slowly over several months or years. Dogs may show the first signs at any age but most do before 4 years old.

What are the symptoms of syringomyelia?

Common signs/symptoms include pain in the neck and shoulders, muscle weakness, pain and stiffness in the legs, numbness or decreased sensation, especially to hot and cold, abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis), muscle contractions, and uncoordinated movements (ataxia).

Can syringomyelia go away?

Syringomyelia is a cyst in the spinal cord which can result in numbness over the back or trunk and in more severe cases, weakness of the hands and arms. Untreated, it typically worsens slowly over time. In some cases, it stabilizes and does not worsen while in others it can completely resolve without surgery.

How do I reduce syringomyelia pain?

Medications such as gabapentin (Neurontin) may help decrease the painful sensation of the shoulders and arms that frequently occur with syringomyelia. The goal of surgery is to correct the underlying cause of the syrinx and relieve the pressure on your spinal cord.

What drugs are used to treat syringomyelia?

The most commonly used drugs are ibuprofen, acetylsalicylic acid, naproxen, indomethacin, mefenamic acid, and piroxicam.

Is syringomyelia an autoimmune disorder?

GBS is an acute post-infectious autoimmune disease which is mediated by autoantibodies against the myelin of peripheral nerves. Syringomyelia is a chronic disease characterized by a cavity extending longitudinally inside the spinal cord.
