Rupert's Fund - what's it all about?
Rupert's Fund was created to help critical research into the painful -and sometimes life shortening - neurological condition, Syringomyelia, which affects predominately Cavalier King Charles Spaniels but also some other breeds.
The Fund pays for MRI scans for older Cavaliers, to help the Canadian genome research, which is aimed at finding the genes that cause Syringomyelia and with the Estimated Breeding Values (EBV) project, which eventually will enable cavalier breeders to select the most genetically appropriate mates to help reduce incidence of Syringomyelia and other genetic health problems.
