    He may have had a seizure. I don't know how to help him get the water out of his lungs or bronchi, wish I could help there.

    But if he is breathing, keep him warmish - like 75F or more, and quiet, watch him and after a while offer him some water, some food.

    Keep talking to him, pet him if he likes that.

    Keep us posted, too, please.

    Might hold him with head slightly towards floor may help bring up extra water, hope he is okay [​IMG]
