Dog Enlarged Heart-are there signs that she is about to die?

My dog was diagnosed with an enlarged heart a few months ago. She got heart medication and that helped with the coughing, but recently she has been more lethargic than usual. She woke me up at 4 am today for no reason, and I noticed that she was having some trouble breathing and her heart was beating so, so fast. Are these signs of a "heart attack?" If not, how will I know when she is about to pass? All I want is for her to go in peace at the vet's office, so will I  be able to get her there in time?

As soon as your gut tells you that your pet should be put out of misery, please do so.  It hurts, I know.  But it is the last and most loving thing you can do for your dog.  Blessings for you and your dog - Blu
