Ghost eyes, back legs go out

Today I was cleaning my front door windows with aerosol glass cleaner. 14 week Remington was near by. He did not touch, lick or have any contact with the cleaner. But immediately following cleaning Remington had a ghost look, his eyes were empty looking. I called him into family room away from door and he was having issues with his rear legs, seemed like a drunk person stumbling. I have a vet visit scheduled to figure this out. But obviously im uneasy over the whole situation. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Will the cleaner have caused this?

Don't see how the cleaner would have caused it if he wasn't in direct contact with it as you say. Was he being very active at the time just prior to you noticing this? How warm/humid is down there? Did you get him from a breeder?

Is he ok now? Could he have gotten into anything else that you didn't see?

Watch him closely. If it gets any worse, I'd look for an emergency vet and take him.

Yes he was active before and is active again now. The whole episode start to finish was maybe a minute to minute and a half. He has be outside since the ordeal running and playing. He seems fine. Would the fumes/odor of cleaner cause some sort of reaction? Im 100% certain he didnt come in contact with the cleaner b/c he was lying on a rug behind me the whole time...weather in Atlanta today was 70 degrees and light rain allday.

I would call poison control hotline and ask if this type (aerosol) glass cleaner has any of the constituents that are in windshield wiper fluid and anti-freeze
Think the aerosol would deliver an airborne toxin


Vinegar is in your dogs best interest for window cleaning

He is fine now...so whatever it was is out of his system. I would see the vet to help ease your mind. But, take it as a good sign that he is acting normal now. If he had been poisoned seriously, he wouldn't be getting better on his own. Maybe he got into a mushroom or something if you have them popping up. And the fact that it only lasted a minute, I wouldn't think it is anything that the cleaner or other poisons caused.

I asked about temp/humidity since that has been know, in combination with high intensity activity, to bring to light a condition known as exercise induced collapse. Never heard of it in a puppy though.

He's a cutie! I'd keep the vet appointment just in case and have him checked out. You'll feel better and the vet may be able to give some info for you.

So not knowing what brand you used, I did a quick google search of ingredients in foam window cleaners


Bon Ami® Power Foam Glass Cleaner : SC Johnson
Bon-ami


propane
alcohol
butane
ammonia
and couple other solvents


Yep, I would look at the foam cleaner as the problem. Especially a young pup.
Note: you can click on the + sign and that will explain the individual constituents
