I am currently in the process of retraining my elderly springer. He’s now 16 and had several years off when he was retired due to lameness and a bad back. Diagnosed with arthritis after the strains of torn cruciates he was put on painkillers which didn’t work but when I started to include Flax Farm cold-pressed linseed oil to his diet he improved out of all recognition. He does full days beating during the season and accompanies me on long cross-country runs. He is better this year than he was last. Unfortunately his hearing isn’t very good so he’s having to use a vibrating collar and sign language.
