signs, test, odor


My dog had a seizure 3 nights in a row in exactly the location on 8th St, under the turnpike. Might be a coincidence - my dog is old and has health issues. But I thought it may have been triggered by chemicals from the turnpike construction or train tracks. Given it's proximity to Enos Jones and Dickinson I thought it worth reporting.

More detail:
my dog is pretty old - he's over 10 years. And has some chronic health issues including hip dysplasia, cardiomyopathy and an inoperable growth above his heart. We ran a full set of tests after he nearly drowned 6 months ago - he actually died, but we used CPR to revive him. The vet said he could pass suddenly at any time...
But a strange thing happened 3 nights in a row in the identical location - on 8th St, just under the turnpike. He collapsed with what looked like a seizure. It might simply be a sign of deteriorating health. I believe they've been using chemicals during the construction on that section of the Turnpike - it created a noticeable smell all the way to HP over the past number of weeks. Also I know PSEG had that section of the park "flagged" last week NW of the bleachers.
