Our baby Tessa ( AKC Legacy's Sure Bet) will be 15 years old in August. She is still very energetic and full of life. Recently she would begin wheezing and coughing after her runs around the yard. Nothing serious and only for a few seconds. Tonight she really scared us when the coughing and wheezing turned into not breathing. She laid over on her side gasping for air. Very similar to my son's asthma attacks he had as a child. Her tongue turned blue and she salivated profusely. Immediatley we were in the car to the vets, and after about 5 mins she began to recover. The breathing came hard to her at first but by the time we got to the vets she was again taking deep full breaths. The vet did x-rays and bloodwork, but ultimately found nothing evident. She did however imply that a heart attck could have caused the symptoms. Does this sound right? It didn't to me. Tessa is fine now. Home with her family happily napping next to our bed. I'd really like any insight or info if anyone's experienced this before.
