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

The day before yesterday my dog started licking the carpet

Hi Pearl. The day before yesterday my dog started licking the carpet and pacing with his tail lowered. Took him outside, he ate a little grass and vomited a little but not much. Eating normally and going to the bathroom as usual. Thought it was over. Last night, he started licking the carpet in the middle of the night. Settled down after about 20 minutes. Not sure if I should be concerned or if it's just a bellyacheJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?Customer: He's been sneezing a bit, but otherwise nothing. He's 10 months old

I woke up to the sound of him snorting like a duck sound? He licked me and then wanted to go out and was able to pee. He's a 13 yr old husky.

I have a 16 week old Berner pup and he is hacking and

I have a 16 week old Berner pup and he is hacking and wheezing. Sometimes as he exhales, he sounds congested. He has slight drainage from both eyes. He tends to snort or wheeze most when he's playing or excited. Sometimes, he'll snore at night. We've had him for a month now. He's had all his shots. We kept him away from serious dog interactions until he'd had them all. He's had one on one obedience training, but not with lots of dogs. He's encountered a couple dogs while on walks, but we were careful to keep him as isolated as possible. He was coughing and wheezing a big when he first arrived, but it didn't seem likely that kennel cough would last this long. What would be your suggestion. He's eating and drinking. He plays and in all other ways seems perfectly normal.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: I don't see anything. I did pull a thorn out of his paw about two weeks ago.JA: What is the dog's name?Customer: HectorJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Hector?Customer: I can't think of anything. I'm a first time puppy owner, so I'm not experienced enough to know what to tell you.

My pom. has reverse sneezing which I have been told I can't

My pom. has reverse sneezing which I have been told I can't do anything about , but I noticed that his sinus seemed congested at night so instead of giving him benadryl (for allegeries) I gave him liquid sudafed. Now it seems that he has a runny nose because he he snorts as if his his sinus is draining. I stopped the sudafed hoping that his sinus will stop draining. His sinus is not congested anymore but how do I stop the periodic draining the snorting from that is worst than from his reverse sneezing. Can I go back to the benadryl or should I wait about a week or so?
