This dog is so excited to see her human, she just can’t help herself.  Rebecca (Ehalt) Svetina was gone for two years, and boy was she missed.  See how Casey just passes out and rolls over.  What a ham!

 

 

Casey was taken to a veterinarian and came home with a clean bill of health.  Fainting—also called syncope—is a sudden, momentary loss of consciousness with spontaneous recovery. Though it can be a symptom of serious conditions, it can also be caused by something else: excitement. Casey became so excited that she hyperventilated, meaning that not enough oxygen was reaching her brain. A lack of oxygen causes a loss of consciousness. Casey was only losing consciousness for a couple seconds at a time, which can happen to people, dogs, etc. when they overexert themselves. The family says she has never had this happen before, and they took her to a vet, who assured them that she was fine.

  3. You guys are all vets, i’m guessing, right? Humans happen to collapse when stressed so why dogs cannot pass out under certain circumstances?

    • YGG,………….Passing out like this is one of the signs of congestive heart failure in a dog and it is an end stage symptom so it is serious. No one is trying to be a vet here just trying to be of some help in case the Owner isn’t aware of this condition… You are a butt head….
