I have a golden Labrador whose dad was a carrier for EIC but her mum was clear of EIC (clearly shown on the papers for both parents). But, Bronte shows signs that she actually has EIC, which I didn't think would be genetically possible?? After playing fetch with a ball, sometimes after 10-15 minutes of play, she gets the staggers and collapses. She loves fetch with her ball and has an incredible focus and determination to get her ball as fast as possible. This is my first experience with EIC (our other lab shows no signs whatsoever), so could it be anything else?
We are really mindful of this happening and try to limit her play so that is doesn't occur, but sometimes it surprises us when it appears, so we just sit with her, keep her cool and encourage her to rest and relax.
Any ideas/thoughts are most appreciated?
