Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Does he have a history of heart disease?

2- Are you seeing any abdominal swelling?

3- How long has this been going on?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No history that we know of. As far as the swelling, it looks swollen to me and it is hard to the touch. The cough started six months ago, and the not urinating started a couple weeks ago when my brother (who davie is very close to) was killed.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
He also wheezes at night and seems that when he lays down he can't get comfy and his cough is worse
