I have a little Shihtzu Dog 12 yrs old I took her to the Vet

Customer Question

Hi I have a little Shihtzu Dog 12 yrs old I took her to the Vet because she had such a bad Cough .The Vet thought it could be her Heart so prescribed tablets she then had an X Ray . It turned out not to be her Heart she said that she just has a build up of Fluid could be bronchitis so prescribed Diaretic for her she is still taking them but it isn't making her any better and whilst it has cost me £1000 I just need to get to the root of this I hate to see her awake at night coughing her throat must be very sore . What can I do

Hi there, vet Andrew here. Did the x-ray show anything abnormal at all, other than the fluid? Also, is the cough dry or chesty?
