Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence so that you have a prompt reply to your question. If you would rather wait for the Expert you had originally contacted, just let me know. Otherwise, I’ll be happy to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) How old is your Sheltie? 2) Any history of cardiac or respiratory issues? 3) What state do you live in? 4) Is your companion on any heart worm prevention? If so, what and how many months out of the year is it used? 5) Any fainting or dizziness episodes? 6) Is it only on walks that you see this? 7) Do you have a video showing what you're seeing?
