I have three dogs:
#1. Lady 1.5 years 1/2 Lab 1/2 Colly 65 lbs.
#2. Val 8 years 100% Lab 75 lbs.
#3. Decota (male) 13 years 1/2 Rot 1/2 ? 80 lbs.
This Thursday morning my wife and I get up at about 5:00am and Lady did not get up for her Dog Bone treat. I had to help her up from our bedroom and she acted drunk or semi-paralyzed. She ate her Dog Bone and at 8:00am she ate her one cup of Dried Dog food the same are the other two dogs.
She did walk outside at 8:30am but seemed tired and kind of weak. We both went to work and my wife got home a 4:00pm and she seemed back to about 90% of norm. I got home at 5:00pm and she was maybe at 95% and then I fed all three dogs at 5:45pm one cup dried and split one can of meat dog food.
At 6:00pm our 8 year old Lab could not get up. This was about 12-14 hours later but it seemed to be the same as Lady acted. I carried her to our bathroom that night and put her on her pillow. At 2:00am in the morning I checked on her and she seems like she was in a coma and hard to wake up.
At 6:00am she got up but very slowly and ate her Dog Bone and at 8:00am ate as well. She was now back to about 90% of normal.
I called our Vet and gave the details to the lady at the office and she said she would relay all of this to our Vet. We live on a large wooded lot and our dogs have 100% in and out capability through a doggy door. I was thinking some kind of berry or plant that the dogs might have eaten caused this problem.
The Vet called back and said it could be antifreeze poisoning and if they seemed ok fine, but if they change bring them in. I added Antifreeze to my truck's overflow tank and some to the radiator about a week ago. Some might have boiled over last Wed. night and dripped on the concrete drive but this might explain what has happened if they licked at the spill, but at a 12 hours difference in time.
What should I do now even if they seem normal now that it has been over 4 days for Lady and 3 days for Val and they seem normal? I have not seen any signs of problems, but what should I look to happen if they have some long term problem? What can I do?
