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

45 lb 10 yr old female soft coated Wheaton terrier. She had

45 lb 10 yr old female soft coated Wheaton terrier. She had 2 TPLOs at a young age. 3 or 4. Has terrible skin allergy and is on Temeril P 100 twice a day. She doesn't want to go on walks anymore. She can walk and can run if she has to. No limping just slow. Been coming on for years. X rays last year didn't show much but it seems like age related and probably some arthritis. Tramadol was helping but not much anymore. She's on 50 3 times a day. Think an anti inflmmatory would be a big help with tramadol but she takes Temeril P. Would metacam be an option with Temeril.If not would an increase in the steroid be an option as the anti inflammatory

My dog was diagnosed with kennel cough. Given the standard

My dog was diagnosed with kennel cough. Given the standard antibiotic and temaril p. Since being on the temaril, he's had zero coughing episodes. I know conditions typically get worse, and he has not. Whatever was causing it has not seemed to progress as he shows no other signs of being ill. He's eating, playing, chasing aquirrels and mailmen, barking at the kids on the street and such. The vet listened closely to his heart and lungs and heard nothing. He just said that his tonsils were slightly inflamed. Now, I'm not sure how he got sick. He doesn't interact with other dogs. He hasn't gotten loose. He went to a groomer 3 weeks ago, but the incubation period is 3 to 10 days, so he likely didn't get it there. So that scares me. But all things being said, he is perfectly normal while on the temaril/antibiotics coctail. Is there any kind of indication I would see that he is getting better? Or is the temaril just masking the issue and will he regress when we stop the meds?
