14 month female collapsing during exercise?
our dog Arya started collapsing after walking and encountering other dogs and people. she would go crazy jumping all over and trying to get to them. after walking a few blocks from the encounter she would drop and pant rapidly. once she caught her breath she would get up and continue the walk. once home she collapses on the floor and has shallow breathing for up to 5 mins. doesn't happen if the walk is less than a mile.
YES we have gone to the vet and are awaiting results. she also had an EKG on the treadmill but that didn't produce a collapse. the vet is checking with a cardiologist and has taken Arya of all physical activity.
we were walking her with Holt headgear because she pulls so hard on the martingale. never had this happen until about a month ago. could the headgear be an issue when she cavorts all over the place when encountering other dogs and people? it is almost like she becomes super anxious and needs a timeout.
we are very concerned because she is only 14 months old. can Dobies get EIA (exercise induced asthma) or allergies? we were really fine until everything started blooming. Spring is my worst nightmare for sinus allergies and my little mixed dog has spring sneezes that are controlled with med. Arya does have her nose to the ground and smells all my roses, etc.
any experience you have had with this is appreciated.
