Does the anti inflammatory he's taking cause difficulties in

Does the anti inflammatory he's taking cause difficulties in breathing and excess salivating?It's been a couple of days that Boulie sounds like a freight train even while just sitting. There's a whistle sound also from the nose. I even noticed that when he tries to yawn, he can't complete it. It's like he cuts his yawn half way. And the salivating is nonstop.He's walking well, his appetite is good, and his stool is great. But what are these other symptoms?

My daughter and I are on vacation with our two Lowchens.

I am Renee. My daughter and I are on vacation with our two Lowchens. When we came home from the beach this afternoon Tovah Rose had a snack (some yogurt) and a nap. Emily and I left the dogs in their crates, went down to watch the sunset. When we came back and gave them their dinner, Tovah was not at all interested and refused to eat. She has had her tail tucked up tight between her legs. She has been laying in the corner most of the evening. I took the dogs for a short walk about 8:00. Tovah peed twice and pooped. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Sorry, I accidentally hit send. She walked with her tail up and seemed okay until after she pooped and then she again seemed to want to tuck her tail down. She just followed me into the bedroom and seemed to want to get on the bed. That's where she is now. She is not showing any other symptoms...tail tucked, no appetite, lethargy. We did not take her temperature, but we could do that. She clearly doesn't feel well.

I have a 10 year old Chocolate Lab. I've had her to the vet

I have a 10 year old Chocolate Lab. I've had her to the vet a couple of times for wheezing. She wheezes when she breathes in. He put her on a steroid and some kind of broncial medicine but it did not improve her breathing. Other than the wheeze she doesn't seem to be in any distress and her energy levels are still good.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?Customer: Chocolate Lab dogJA: OK. What is the dog's name?Customer: HarleyJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Harley?Customer: Other than the wheezing she has recently started urinating in the house. She has been fully house trained since a puppy. It started around the same time as the wheeze. Our vet couldn't find a reason for the wheeze and advised to wait and see or spend the $750 for some kind of trach exam. He did do a urine test so don't think it is a urine infection.

Our American bulldog died 2 days ago and I am so upset.

Hello! Our American bulldog died 2 days ago and I am so upset. Feeling guilty, wishing I would have known what went wrong and how sick she was. About 5 days before she passed we noticed her a little slower than usually. Not running to eat her food like usually after her mid day walk. Then she didn't eat for days but was drinking more water. I bought her snacks and he enjoyed them. So after 2 days she did eat and seemed to be getting back to normal. We thought OK, maybe she didn't like her food anymore. The morning of her death my son took her out for her morning walk he noticed her a bit sluggish but nothing major. Few hours later, I noticed she went to the bathroom on the floor not much but enough for me to notice. My Dog was fully house trained. I check on her. She seemed OK. Like 2 hours later I hear her breathing heavier than normal. I go again to check on her and told her to come downstairs so I can see her movements and give her a snack since she didn't eat. She was slow to get up but she complied. She only reached the beginning of the living room when she collapsed and urinated on herself and wouldn't get up. Then a few minutes later had a bowl movement. She tried to get up and move the she fell again. Her breathing became slower and slower until she took her last breathe. 5 months ago she had a complete check up with blood work and they said she was doing great. I'm having a very hard time understanding what went wrong and how I could have avoided it. Did I over look something. She was a wonderful dog.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your bulldog. What is the bulldog's name?Customer: The dogs name was Beauty.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Beauty?Customer: I do have the decon mice poison in the home. Not the pellets but the blocks. I kept one in the basement loose and noticed about 3 weeks ago it was missing but that's not uncommon since lately I have been having an issue with one so I just thought the mouse ate it. Beauty never went to the basement that I know of. We always kept the door closed. Could beauty have eaten the mice poison 3 weeks ago and just now got sick and passed away? I'm full of guilt.
