HI this is DRB and I would be happy to assist you with this.....there are a few things that come to mind with this but ultimately you will have to have chest radiographs (xrays) to get to the bottom of his problem.Your pet should be examined by a licensed veterinarian and have a CBC, chem panel, felv,fiv test and heratworm test and as I said chest xrays.Possibilities for what you are describing include: cardiomyopathy, asthma, heartworm and other intrathoracic pathologies. This is not something that can be helped or treated at home. This should be considered a medical emergency and your pet should be seen asap. I check my computer every night so I am available for follow up assistance after you have seen your vet.
