Syringomyelia Awareness: For the Love of Ollie Book Giveaway

About the creation of the book:
Oliver and Maggie May, two precious little Cavaliers planted themselves firmly in my heart and soul. When their health began to show signs of deterioration, a desperate search began for a diagnosis. Syringomyelia was a relatively unknown genetic disorder and neurologists, veterinarians, breeders, and pet owners were struggling with a profound lack of information and misdiagnosis.

With the help of other pet owners and breeders experiencing the same misfortune, the concept of “For the Love of Ollie” evolved. It is our hope that in book form the information will be available to all and the experiences we have encountered throughout our journey with this disease will help others. By raising awareness in this way we also hope to raise funds for the gene research now under way.

This research will benefit not only all canine breeds suffering from this disease, but our human friends as well.

Yesterday we posted the book Review you can read it here:

  1. I have learned that Syringomyelia affects humans as well as Cavaliers, which makes me sad. Also, that there is no specific gene that has been identified as a cause. They are still researching treatment options as surgery is not always, or even often, successful. Syringomyelia is brutal and a lifelong struggle.

    Thank you for this giveaway and for dedicating so much time to spreading awareness. The more we know, the more we can help.

  2. I would win this for my mother in law – she is a dog lover and has a one year old poodle/shitzu mix. a[email protected]
