SPRINGER HEALTH SURVEY IS READY. THE LINK FOR THE SURVEY WILL BE ACTIVE UNTIL June 30, 2017.
The comprehensive English Springer Spaniel Health Survey is now available! Please go to the link to start the survey. Each dog you own requires a separate submission. The survey submissions are going to a third party; the Foundation will only get the data on the conditions reported. Some FAQs are posted on the Foundation website to answer many of the questions you may have, but please contact us if you have questions or problems with the survey. The survey can be accessed at the following link https://goo.gl/JxQwRf. The link for the FAQ’s is http://englishspringerfoundation.org/health-projects/surveys
This survey will provide a “snapshot” of the breed since it includes healthy dogs as well as those diagnosed with various listed conditions. Please only report those conditions that were diagnosed by a veterinarian. In addition, there is a mortality section to track the cause of death (including old age) for Springers who died from January 2012 to the present. The results of this survey will allow the Foundation to determine what health studies to support or institute well into the future. The future health of our breed is in our hands – please support this effort by taking the survey. Thanks!
