I asked retriever people because I thought it was worth a quick shot to see if someone had had the same experience not because I don't care about my dog. I didn't take offense to all ur suggestions to go to the vet except yours irirsh mate as for yours I just considered the probable source and let it go.
I did go to an emergency vet instead of waiting until next morning for my vet to open. the awesome and the bad news is they didn't know what it was exactly either but the put her on an IV flushed her system over night and next morning she was fine. I took her to my vet for full blood work and they couldn't confirm anything either. just possible dehydration or she ate something at the lake I didn't see and it gave her an allergic reaction.
mostly she is her bouncy crazy self again. thanks
First off, me apologies for perhaps a wee bit o' over reaction, no disparagement really intended. i have owned, trained, and lived with Labrador gundogs for well over three decades. As I read ye post, it sounded not to be related to hypothermia and the symptoms being exhibited as per your description did not sound encouraging for ye dog. I will admit readily that having lost a really amazing Labrador gundog at the way early age of 7.5 years back in September was crushing and still has me on edge. My intent was for the good and welfare of ye dog, not to come down on ye unwarranted. T'was not completely clear to me in ye OP, but having read ye follow up post, I know ye did what was right and given ye options at hand. I know for meself, I have specifically opted to use the services of a veterinary facility that is open 24/7/365 as we all know dogs don't get into medical trouble only from 9 to 5.
As well, my post was in hopes that most realize that sometimes waiting in hope that things will improve can be very detrimental and a death sentence for a dog tha may have survived with quickly administered veterinary attention.
I look not to cause disharmony on the board and with individual members and I hope ye accept me most sincere apology for any misdirected finger pointing.
Good on ye for doing right by ye dog. As I said, once they are gone, ye can't bring them back and so many of us know all to well how awful that can be.
Cheers to ye Mate
