I have a 14 year old Shitzu female who has trouble breathing always a horse cough (see video) I have had blood tests, echo cardiograms and still no vets I frequent can figure out her ailment I have had her on Lasix (in case water around heart which echo showed there isn’t) and predisone and some steroids, no of it seems to help she is constantly panting and having a horse cough. I am at my wits end and need some help.
Thank you Mary I live in North New Jersey

if there is a vet school or vet teaching hospital that is the place to take her bring her vet records with you so they don't have to repeat tests already done. this place will find the problem and give you the answers you need\

they hae all the latest equipment and there will be a team of doctors and students to study the case and are no more and sometimes even cheaper than your regular vet.
