Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

It could be that poor little Pilot is constipated and giving him a laxative such as Laxatone or Petromalt available at the pet store will help move this through if this is the cause. I worry very much that Pilot may have something more serious going on...the difficulty breathing could indicate Congestive Heart Failure or Liver disease. If this continues, you will have to have your vet run tests to be sure there is not something more serious.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
