Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.
Did she seem to pass out/faint ?
Was she responsive to you?
You may have gone offline. If she seemed to pass out that is an indication of a possible heart problem.
At this age you also have to consider seizure activity from something pressing on the brain.
I would check her vital signs and I will direct you to a link for this but if her gums are pale, white or bluish especially if this happens again it is an emergency.
To be on the safe side I would have her seen tonight.

Checking the vital signs What is Normal in dogs
Thank you. You can try keeping an eye on her tonight, but I do think you are dealing with a heart problem. It is possible an ekg or echo cardiogram may be needed.
Yes with a heart problem they may go down suddenly and once the heart is back in rhythm they go back to being normal, until the next time. In many instances a dog can go un-diagnosed with a heart problem because when they go to a Vet their heart is in rhythm.
Keep an eye on her, take the vital signs in the link I sent you, but if it happen again I would take her in
Hearts that are out of rhythm and go back into rhythm can usually be seen through an echo cardiogram. It might go un noticed with just a stethoscope. Be sure to tell them about this event
You are very welcome. Wishing you and your pup the best:)
