Q. Please help I have a 9year old Border Collie very active and very happy to go for long walks. Recently she started cramping during long walks +-5 km

A. This symptom could be due to pain, maybe arthritis. It could also be due to some other internal condition like heart problem. You should probably take it easy on her and not walk her more than 2Km as she is an old lady.
