My pekingese has heart failure. She is just 9 years old.

Hi- my pekingese has heart failure. She is just 9 years old. She, as of Saturday, is on Vetmedin twice a day, Enalapril twice a day, and lasik 20mg 3 times a day. She is not coughing. And she seems to be breathing well but as of today she does not want to eat at all and is very lethargic... when she walks she seems dizzy. Do you think this is the medicine and dosage needs to be changed or just the diagnosis?

Type your Dog Veterinary question hereMy 6 yr, old malw chihuhua has started crying when I pick him up. He has stopped eating, is very listless and balks at going outside to the bathroom. He is usually very peppy, had a good appetite and doesn't mind going outside to do his business. Noticed behavior changes last night and continued all day today. What can be the problem and what is best first aid?

Questions you might consider asking
  • The dog I rescued from a humane society at age 7 has started to snap at a few kids. He has been so good until the last week or so. What can I do to stop this behavior before he bites someone?
  • We noticed a bump on the top of our dog's nose on Sunday. It had not grown however we noticed it was bleeding yesterday (it seems like he itched it raw). If it has not grown and we have not noticed a change in his behavior is there any reason to take him to the vet at this point?
  • How do I modify my dogs behavior of possessive aggression?
