Join us in this case study involving Dog owner Susan Paulson. Susan lost her dog Kinetic to water intoxication, also known as Hyponatremia.  Hyponatremia is a relatively rare but potentially fatal condition that is most commonly seen in dogs that love to play in the water. They tend to ingest large quantities of water very quickly. It can also happen when they “catch” pressurized water from sprinklers or hoses. Excessive amounts of water cause the body to lose sodium. The body’s cells begin to fill with water and swell. If the cells in the brain swell, it can affect the central nervous system which can be fatal.
