    Default International SM conference in Rugby

    NB: Questions are closed and the conference has taken place. I will get info up from the Q&A session as soon as I have some time to do so!

    Please note anyone with questions on SM and cavaliers that they wish the panel to address can send the questions to me or to representatives for pet owner questions and breeder questions. Contact info added below in additional posts.

    This is a really top notch lineup and the SM Q&A will be chaired by Dr Bruce Fogle, widely known author on dogs and TV presenter.

    Here are the contacts for the pet owner questions. You can send them directly to either Carol or Sandy. Message from Carol crossposted with permission. I also have the breeder contacts too and will post those.

    Hi All

    Just a reminder that if any of you have a question which you would
    like us to put to the panel of experts at the Symposium, please send
    them to Sandy Smith or Carol Fowler.

    We've been asked to collate and prioritise them prior to the
    Symposium, so please don't leave it until the last minute.

    The panel of experts are: Dr Clare Rusbridge, Dr Dominic Marino
    (veterinary neurologists), Graham Flint (human neurologist), Dr Guy
    Rouleau (geneticist), Dr Sarah Blott (canine geneticist, breeding
    strategies)

    We will do our very best to include them and relay the answers back
    to you.

    Contact us through Yahoo email or:

    Dear Karlin, thank you so much for your kindness in giving us all this wonderful opportunity to pose our concerns and queries. It will be of immense help to me as I have a number of concerns before purchasing a new puppy.
