View Full Version : REMINDER: submit your questions on SM!

23rd September 2007, 11:03 PM
The specialists panel at the upcoming international conference on syringomyelia in Rugby, England, NEED YOUR QUESTIONS!

Both breeders and pet owners are very welcome to submit any question they would like addressed by this special session panel. I should be there to take notes, and others will also be there to report back on the answers. This panel was especially set up to let all of us ask the things we are wondering about with this condition.

There are two sets of question coordinators -- two pet owners who will collate the pet owner questions, and two breeders who will coordinate the breeder questions.

Pet questions can go to Carol Fowler or Sandy Smith:


Breeder questions can go to Sue Robinson: sue.robinson0@talk21.com or to Veronica Hull, chair of the Southern UK CKCS Club.

Please don't lose this great opportunity to ask anything you'd like. This panel has some of the world's experts on SM in cavaliers and will be chaired by well know vet author Dr Bruce Fogle.

NB: You need to get questions in right away, as the coordinators need to submit them in advance for the panelists.

If you want you can also PM any questions to me and I'll forward them on to the appropriate people. :thmbsup:

Thanks to those who sent me some questions; I have sent them on to Carol and Sandy. Be sure to get anything that comes to mind in right away to the appropriate contacts as they will need to start assembling the questions list for the panel in a short while.

If you are in the UK, and care about the future of the breed, do consider attending this one day vet segment of the conference -- it was set up for us, all the people who love this breed, not just those who know they have SM dogs, and is only £45 for the day. You'll get to meet some of the top specialists as well as many breeders and also Dr Bruce Fogle. :)
