Do you think that the wound could be an old one, or it severe enough to be causing his clinical signs? - Dr. C

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't know? But it's not an old wound.

What kind of dog is Black? How long has the moaning/groaning and respiratory issues been going on? Is he panting heavily or struggling to breathe?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Black is a mixture of chihuahua and rat terrier but he small like a chihuahua. The upper respiratory it seems as though it started around April 1st and it has got worse, and the moaning and groaning begin a couple of weeks ago where he's getting slower in his movement and he gets out of the breath fast. Black really does not want to go outside
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When he walked fast and ir running he gets out Brett and he's panting heavily and he's struggling to breathe

I'd be very concerned about cardiac disease as the cause of his clinical symptoms with exercise intolerance and trouble breathing. Is there an emergency clinic where you can have Black evaluated this evening? That would be my first recommendation. I am very worried that he may be in congestive heart failure. Emergency medical attention tonight is going to be his best chance at survival. - Dr. C

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No their isn't a emergency clinic but I will take him tomorrow morning

OK, I'll be thinking of him. Keep me posted! - Dr. C
