No we have never given him any heart medication. He has never shown signs of heart problems. But he is fully vaccinated. Also, his belly is pulsing really hard. This pulse, is more on his lower-left side.
In fact he does cough frequently. When he does cough, he will cough for about 15 seconds at a time. We currently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico and I do not believe mosquitoes too big of a problem in our area. His gums seem to be okay.
At this point, his entire abdomen is pulsing extremely hard. And his head and neck are shaking. Also, I have not seen him open his jaw once since this started happening. These symptoms started last night and seem to be getting worse, fast.
Thank you for your help. But unfortunately, Dumbo did not make it through the night. He started having seizures. The veterinarian could not figure out what was wrong with him. She suspected that there were multiple causes.
