If you have managed to rescue a dog from drowning, there is a chance, even if they recover and seem fine at the time, there is a chance there is still going to be fluid on the chest and in the lungs. That can take time to cause clinical signs if there is not that much fluid in there. But what you do need to do is get your pet checked out. If you have any concern at all that they have ingested any water, they need to be seen by the vet who can listen and possibly image to see if there is any sign of fluid on that chest because better to prevent the consequences of that than try and treat once it is happening. Once your animal is in low spirits or distressed, if there is water on that chest, then again the vet has a reduced chance of getting a good outcome.
