3. The unsteady on the feet is very concerning, and suggests to me there may be other underlying health issues that need to be addressed. In that case, at least a basic blood test is critical to help understand what additional treatment might be helpful.
4. There are medications that can help with heart disease and congestive heart failure, but only your vet can make the distinction on examination of these drugs should be started now or not.
