I have a 2.5 year old chocolate lab that loves to swim in our pool.

My question is can he swim everyday and do I have to do anything when he gets out? I use chlorine in the pool.

There's no reason he can't swim every day, but the pool chemicals may make his skin dry. Then again, Labs are double-coated, which protects their skin, so he may be just fine. I'd look scaly skin or a lot of itching, which would indicate dry skin.

Here's an American Kennel Club article that talks about preventative care water :
