Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
What breed of dog is she? Has she ever been diagnosed with a heart murmur?Was she alert through the episode or fairly non-responsive?
Two things that I am concerned about:1) Syncope (fainting) from heart problems2) Seizure activity.Due to the gravity of both, I would recommend having her examined and treated by your vet. At very least, blood work and chest x-rays/cardiac ultrasound would be warranted to determine if abnormalities exist on either which might explain the episode you witnessed.
