How much does the average Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy from a reputable dog breeder?

The average price for a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy that comes from a reputable breeder whom has done all health screening with their dam and sire and the pups will depend on three things. The breeder themselves, the pedigree of the puppy and the area in which you/the breeder lives in. But on average, you are looking at anywhere between $1200.00 - $2000.00 per puppy.

Have you ever heard of a Cavalier getting Laryngeal Paralysis? My Cavalier was diagnosed at age 9. He had 3 surgeries, all failed. Over $13,000.00 in vet bills we lost him at age 10.

Laryngeal Paralysis is not a common health problem that the Cavalier can face, but any breed of dog can get Laryngeal Paralysis. I'm sorry to hear that the surgeries were not successful. It is very hard to lose a beloved pet. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a breed rittled with medical problems. A person getting a puppy for sale needs to make sure that all health checked have been done on the dam and sire and the dogs passed the tests. I've heard horror stories of breeders still breeding bad stock just because they can.

Contacting a responsible breeder, going to a dog show, contacting a trusted vet, or looking online is your best bet for health issues. But the main issues with the C.K.C.S are mitral valve disease, heart failure, syringomyelia (SM), hip and knee dysplasia, luxating patellas, episodic falling (EF), and certain vision disorder's like cataracts, corneal dystrophy, distichiasis, entropion, microphthalmia, progressive retinal atrophy, retinal dysplasia, and keratoconjunctivitis sicca. Hearing disorders are common for this breed as well, like primary secretory otitis media and deafness by the age of 3-5 years is common. As many as half of all C.K.C.S's have blood disorder's such as thrombocytopenia and macro thrombocytopenia as well.

At age 6, my Cavalier developed an immune system disorder. After a year of intensive health care, it is thought that he has developed irritable bowel disease. He has had extensive testing done and many disorders were ruled out. I am very happy to realize there are many grave health disorders that were eliminated over the past 12 months and am blessed to be able to pay the $6,000 bill. He requires daily steroids, antibiotics and a special diet. He will continue to see his Vet, Cardiologist and GI Vet for ultrasound exams and frequent renal and liver blood work. Frequent lab values are key to managing his health as there is no cure.
In summary, full coverage pet health insurance is vital if you have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

Do Cavalier King Charles Spaniels come in different sizes? I saw a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel the other day that seemed taller then I expected.

As with any dog there may be slight variance between individuals, but no, Cavaliers do not come in different sizes. Cavaliers should be around 12-13 inches at the shoulder, and weigh between 13 and 18 lbs.

Why are the lifespans of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels so short? I have read that Cavalier King Charles Spaniels only live 9-11 years. Is this accurate and why such a short life span?

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels can live for about nine to fourteen years. Their lifespan can be shortened by health issues including heart problems.

Anonymous

Among reputable, established breeders you will see many of their older dogs living into their teens due to conscientious breeding protocols. Average life span has actually increased over the past 10-15 years because of the best breeders' careful selection and timing of litters. The most prevalent and life threatening condition of these dogs is mitral valve degeneration that progresses to congestive heart failure. The speed of progression from the onset of a heart murmur to heart failure varies greatly from dog to dog but is heritable within a blood line. This is why it is so important to only buy a Cavalier puppy from a reputable breeder who health tests and offers at least 2-year health guarantees on their puppies. Backyard breeders and pet stores know nothing of the health lineage of their dogs or puppies and tend to have the most serious and early onset of heritable conditions. For more information about heritable disease in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, go to ackcsc.org.

My wife and I had 3 Cavaliers all Blenheim at different ages. The first puppy lived 9 years. The second lived 10 years. The third lived to 11 years and all were given serious doctor care to keep them as long as possible.
