Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian.
I understand that your pet Estrella is having some strange behaviors including: coughing, breathing fast while asleep, depression/lethargy, and walking in reverse.
These symptoms may be related and in particular the lethargy, breathing fast while asleep and coughing (occasionally) all indicate a potential heart disease issues.
I understand you are also under some financial restraints right now. These symptoms do not indicate simple depression from a pet that passed away, they indicate an underlying disease process and my top suspision is concerning her heart. Which would require getting her a chest x-ray and examined by a vet to confirm and see if she needs to be placed on heart medication to treat her.
I do have a few financial resources that may be able to assist you if you would like for me to share them here?
