I took Scottie to the vet, Dr. Psuet in Presque Isle, Maine for the hiccups and also a cough like he has a problem with his heart. She said that his heart eas fine, but I have had two of the same breed die from heart disease, but before they were on Vasotec. Dr. Pesuet put Scottie on Temaril-p- an anti-inflammatory-cough suppressant. She said it was like a backed up-or reversed sneeze and to also take these pills for his trachea.
I am sceptical. I think it is heart. He is, as I write this, having hiccups and I dop not know whether to give to Scottie. Could you answer me back asap, as it is Sunday and I am ill and cannot get him to the vet.
Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

If you do not trust your vet then why don't you get a second opinion from another vet. Just because your other pets developed heart disease doesn't mean that this dog will. vetcare
