Mandy

I see you are in London. If you don't mind me asking where did Poppy have the MRI scan and how much did it cost?

Just for future (if necessary) reference

Thanks a lot

Hi Sue

MRI scan was done at the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals' The Royal Veterinary College, the costs was around �1200 (thank god for insurance, as we will have to have it done again!!!)

Mandy,

Thought so - its a fortune isn't it??

I cancelled the pet insurance just a little while before Scholtz had his first seizure - so the last year has been an enormous financial drain as well as emotional!!!

Never mind, thats life isn't it.

Hope Poppy gets sorted though, and I'm really glad that they found out a cause and can maybe fix it for her.

Scholtz is our third German Shepherd - we've had a Rommel, a Fritz and now a Scholtz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poppy is a really pretty name too.

Love to both of you
