14 year old teacup chihuahua diagnosed with CHF a while back,

Customer Question

14 year old teacup chihuahua diagnosed with CHF a while back, we are her new owners, I don't have a lot of details. Has spells of wheezing for air, some are lasting linger. This time has been over 10 min and she seems to be really struggling. But she is still moving, walking, will lick my hand. Tail is wagging, but not her usual, so I'm afraid she's suffering. Is there anything I can do to ease her suffering until we can get her to a vet tomorrow??

Hi Lynne, I'm so sorry that Cheech has you guys worried. Do you happen to have a video of the episodes you're seeing? This would help me to be able to see what you're seeing. Is she on any medications for the CHF? Any coughing?
