Dog loves to swim but has occasional seizures
My 3-year-old golden doodle loves to swim laps in our pool with our grandkids. She is on phenobarbital and potassium bromide to control seizures and is doing well at the moment, but we are uncomfortable about allowing her to swim.

Has anyone had experience with canine life vest for dogs suffering from seizures? And would they keep her head above water if she should have a seizure in the pool?

We would be near or in the pool when she is allowed to swim.

I would not trust a life vest to keep a seizing dog's head above water.  I say make sure your dog is supervised while swimming, with someone who is ready to get the dog out of the water if a seizure occurs. - Blu
