View Full Version : IRE/UK: CDs from Rugby SM Conference talks NOW AVAILABLE!

7th January 2008, 11:58 AM
I have received a shipment of the CDs for the Rugby SM conference -- if anyone in Ireland or the UK is interested in getting the pair, let me know. These are designed for a general audience and cover both breeder and pet owner issues regarding syringomyelia in the breed. The CDs can be played on a stereo or a PC or Mac. All profits go directly to SM research.

The cost for a set of BOTH CDs including p&p is €17 for Ireland or £13 for the UK.

PM me if you are interested.

What does that work out to in US $$ ?

US or Canadian buyers can get them directly from the Cafepress.com site, where they are $10.99 each for each 80-minute CD. For each one, $6 goes to SM research, so that's $12 for research from each set :).


Anyone anywhere can order easily from the link above -- international postage is quite cheap, but I just ordered some extra sets to sell directly to folks over here.

Included on the CDs:

Canine syringomyelia

Karlin ,

If I understand you correctly ...you would like us to order directly from the site if we are not in UK.

If that isn't the case I would like a set ... please.

Anyone in the US or Canada should order directly from Cafepress (and anyone else can, too! The postage is really cheap). I had them make 15 sets for me and send them on, so I could offer them to people over here and give them to the vet schools. The price is the same.

The sets are the same, and made in the same place, but it costs me more to send them (as I ordered them from there, paid postage for them to come here, and would then pay to send them back again and package them) than to have people in North America order directly from the Cafepress.com site. :) Either way the same amount goes to SM research -- basically on Cafepress you are going through the storefront I set up there to sell them. But they are the ones who manufacture the CDs and ship them. I send the profit cheques from Cafepress on to the research project.

Thank you..

I actually want to give a set to my vet since Reggie has the early stages of SM and no one in my area knew of it.
