While we were away for 3 days on a short trip, my in-laws let my 5mo old pup swim in their farm ponds. It’s been hot with no rain here and the ponds do have a green film on them. None of us had a clue about this being toxic until today. They way over fed him and this was his 1st time being away from us. We got him back yesterday and since then he’s been laying around and sleeping. Not like him at all! I’ve never seen him like this. He’s always a bundle of energy and loves to constantly play with us and his toys. Now I’ve gotten myself worried sick. I’m hoping it’s just that he’s recouping from being away and fed too much! He has ate fine today and has none of the other symptoms. I saw most dogs died anywhere from 15min to 3 days after exposure. He’s supposed to go to the vet on Thursday, but I’m wondering if I should take him in tomorrow... Also was wondering if anyone had read when it’s safe for dogs to go swimming again? I don’t know if you have to wait till colder weather or after periods of rain, etc.
