    DefaultJack may have had a a little seizure

    Yesterday evening I shocked the pool. It was up to the high eighties today. Jack retrieved from the yard a few times then into the pool for about a half an hour. Back into the yard for about fifteen minutes. Jack called it off and we went into the house. About a half an hour on the house Wife came home and we started dinner. I was not in the room when she called out Jack was in trouble.

    He was not sitting up, but not laying down. Sort of hunched of and frozen in place. He was on the cork floor and had his toes spread and nails set. He was trembling and drooling and looked frightened.

    I got a throw rug for him and he tried to move him onto it. When I walked away to get another rug he followed me. He was still trembling but not as much. He jumped up onto the couch but did not stay put. When I headed out to the door, he followed. He was outside for about ten minutes. At the end he threw up. That was about an hour ago. Since then he has been bugging me to feed him dinner in an ever increasing amount of annoyance.

    I think this may have been a seisure. A small one. He never collapsed he was lucid, just frozen in place. Petting him and talking to him seemed to help. Not sure if swimming in the pool had anything to do with this or not. This reminds me a little of what happenmed last year.

    I am calling the vet on Tuesday.

    It's safe to go in the pool so soon after shocking it? I thought it took a couple of days to get to normal again.


    I am sorry he is not well. I sure hope that he is better soon!

    I would bet he drank/ingested pool water with too many chemicals for him. Shocking a pool involves a lot of chemicals that don't go away for a few days.

    There may be some corelation to the shocking of the pool & Jack's episode. I hope he feels better. Please let us know what the vet says.

    Some Labs including my old Lab Jake will experience periodic short seizures. Nothing to worry about unless they become very frequent then you may need some medication for control. Hope it's nothing more serious.

    I don't think the shock had anything to do with it. Most of the shocks today, you can swim within 15 minutes.

    On a side note... a friend of mine has an older Basenji that has recently been having "small" seizures, with shaking, drooling. She found something on her Basenji list about feeding a raw egg a day to control this. And it worked for her. Her girl is no longer having these episodes. Worth a try. But I think you are wise to have a vet checkup too.

    Hugs to Jack.
