Maks - Caughing & Heavy Breathing!

11011909?1409236591
I have a 10 year old Doberman and he recently started coughing and breathing very heavily, he has a very faint percolating kind of a sound coming from his nose as he breaths!
The cough goes on and off but his breathing remains heavy, I can see him breathing and his body moving up and down, which is unusual!
He seems to be eating and he's still playful with my other Doberman. I know the best thing would be to take him to the vet but he has been through a lot...4 years ago he was diagnosed with stomach cancer, which my vet now and since then has no explanation for so I am a bit weary taking him to the vet again.
when he starts to cough I stop whatever I am doing and whatever he is doing and slowly pet his chest which seems to help him, maybe because I am calming him down!
any suggestions on how I can possibly help him would be greatly appreciated!

Unfortunately, not sure what you can do for him at home other then make him comfortable.
With the history of cancer and his age, I think you know he really should be seen by the Vet.  Hopefully, the cancer has not spread but that is a possibility.  He could have a lung infection going on or some heart issues.
I hope you can get him for a consult with your Vet.
Good luck!
