You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

I'm sorry to hear of this with Diesel. Coughing in conjunction with those bubbles (the foam that arises in the lungs of small dogs in congestive heart failure) are danger signs that should prompt the attention of a vet at your earliest convenience. Congestive heart failure is life-threatening and so time is of the essence. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
