Springer spaniel who's exhausted after short walk
Our English springer is a 13month old bitch who has become increasingly tired since her first season at 10 months old.
Today we did our usual loop which takes 40 minutes through fields, and after the first 5-10 minutes she stopped running wildly and started to trot alongside. By the end of the walk she was frothy at the mouth and using any excuse to lie down.
It was warm today - 24 degrees, but cloudy with a breeze. She's been checked by a vet but nothing has shown up after having bloods or with the listening to the heart via stethoscope - no other checks have been made - lots of reassurance given though.
Any advice or does anyone have a springer with similar problems that may have been diagnosed?
