Chihuahua heart failure
My 15+ year old, female chihuahua has been diagnosed with heart failure. She has been given tussigon for her cough, and forosemide. I guess this is the end? Do I now just wait to decide when to put her to sleep? How do I know when the time is right? I don't want her to suffer.

Hi Cathy.....Has she been on the medications, for enough time, to decide if they are helping? Has she seen a Canine Cardiologist to see exactly what kind of Heart Disease she has? Medications work beautifully if the correct ones are given for the particular problem.....She can live many years with Heart problems.....No, I don't think this is a death sentence!

Have your Vet give you a referral to a specialist.....The sooner the better, to manage her condition.....Let us know how it goes......Merry Christmas......Karla
