My 8.5 lb, 13 year old Yorkie rescue is having heart

My 8.5 lb, 13 year old Yorkie rescue is having heart disease/COPD symptoms. He spent a day in the hospital with trouble breathing. He rallied after a dose of steroids. He is now taking temaril-p 1/2 tab, benazepril HCL 2.5 mg, and furosemide 10 mg. he also takes levocrine 0.1 mg a day for thyroid. He has been on meds for 3 days and his symptoms have worsened. He is struggling to breath. He is eating & drinking and is moving around, but the snorts and congestion is worse. What do I do? He has recovered from paralisis mid back disc issues, and has lost a lot of his sight and hearing. He is such a fighter, but I don't want to prolong his life if he is miserable. We adopted him @ 6 years old, but assume he is older.Poor guy. I would love an opinion or maybe I haven't allowed the meds time to work? He has been on low fat diet for 6 months.Thanks for your help.Worried human, Angela
