Also, as you are all much more familiar with this condition, is there a  danger with water ingestion when swimming? Many people who have ME dogs live near lakes, the ocean, or rivers…some even have swimming pools their dogs love to use… and as so many dogs love to swim it only recently occurred to me this may actually be a concern!

“I have a newfoundland who was diagnosed with MG and ME last year. Keeping her out of the water was not only hard but seem unfair as she loves it so much. My vet actually came up with a solution that in addition to the life vest I was putting her in that I add an inflatable e-collar on her to help keep her head out of the water. Faith love it and was once again able to enjoy the water and was a happy newf. In fact my vet has a picture of her in the water retrieving a docken hanging on his wall.”
