Club Health Clinic – September 2015
The Cavalier Club Health Day held on Saturday 26th September at the Battram Access Centre in Leicestershire which was well attended.

Dr Jordi López-Alvarez LltVet DipECVIM-CA (Cardiology) PhD MRCVS auscultated a total of 41 Cavalier King Charles spaniels and 2 Ibizan Hounds.
From the CKCS: 73.2% (30 out of 41) had no murmur, 7.3% (3/41) had a grade 1 out of 6 murmur of mitral valve disease, 14.6% (6/41) had a grade 2/6, 2.4% (1/41) had a 3/6 and 2.4% (1/41) had a grade 5/6 murmur. However, these dogs were relatively young: the mean age of these dogs was 3.8 years old and the median was 3 yo, ranging from 0.8 years of age for the younger to 9.5 years old for the older.

Eye testing was carried out by Mr Paul McPherson.
