Please use the following links to arm yourself with information. Learn more about cavalier health, history, AKC breed standards, raising a puppy, rescues, how to find a responsible breeder, and what you can do to prevent MVD in your cavalier. Avoid impulse buying. Once you have done your research, you will be ready to talk to breeders. If you know more about cavaliers then someone who's breeding them, that's a red flag. Responsible pet owners always invest the time it takes doing research before bringing home a new puppy.

Products I use and highly recommend.
I have personally researched each one and successfully use them on all my dogs:
*Supplements by Nuvet Labs www.nuvet.com/66236 Made in the USA, using all natural "Human grade" ingredients and manufactured in an FDA approved lab.
*Nuvet Plus is a powerful, immune system builder that targets the cardiovascular system and reduces inflammation to help delay the onset of MVD and keep cavalier hearts strong. It also completely eliminates tear staining naturally. Nujoint Plus Anti-inflammatory joint support that is so powerful and effective, it got my arthritic dog off her prescription strength medication with no side effects! I recommend for growing puppies up to two years old and again at 5 years old to prevent arthritis.

*Teeth cleaner https://oxyfresh.com/ Easy to use Oxyfresh, just squirt it in to dog's mouth or add to the drinking water. Daily use reduces bacteria in the mouth. Breeders believe the bacteria in the mouth may be a contributing factor for MVD.
*Using Nuvet Plus and Oxyfresh daily in combination will help to prevent or delay MVD onset in cavaliers.
Ear Cleaner http://zimfamilycockers.com/EarCleaner.html Easy to make up at home, works very well, and saves money. I also recommend shaving all the fur under the ear flap and behind the ear. This will not change your dog's appearance but I guarantee will greatly reduce ear infections.
Vaccines www.neotechvaccines.com Overrides the mother's passive immunity in puppies and does not have a failure rate when used according to Neotech vaccination schedule.
