    Defaultexercise induced collapse

    My young (2 YO), very fit labrador bitch has EIC. Has anybody got any experience with this problem and has anybody got any suggestions that may help the dog? I have read most of the information put out by the University of Minnisota and have also spoken to the researcher. He said that this problem is rife in Labs.

    My dog only seems to collapse when she is hunting quail. This is no doubt caused by the continuous exercise coupled with the excitement of the hunt. She is a trialing dog and this activity does not seem to effect her as there is a recovery time between runs.

    Ant help would be appreciated. I live in Australia.

    Unfortunately there is nothing you can do other than avoid her trigger (quail). Some dogs, once they get older, will become aware of their bodies more, and will quit before they collapse, but a high geared dog may not. I have been told by one person that he carries water and a power bar and feels it helps w/ a faster recovery.

    Only adding that this condition can be screened for prior to breeding. You should notify your breeder that your dog is affected. If they are not screening for it in your country, you might want to be an advocate for that amongst your hunt brethren.

    Thanks. The breeder is aware of her condition and they are now screening. However 3 years ago when she was conceived, screening was not available and the condition not well known.
