Puppy with enlarged heart, fluid on lungs and neck painHi There,
I have a 14 month old X Besengi puppy who has been battling with neck pain for the last 8 months. She had X-Rays, an MRI and various pain killers, cortisone and muscle relaxants until a month ago when the Vet said she had a pinched nerve which was a congenital condition. She is now on a 15cc dosage of Pet-Cam once daily (probably for life, if I cannot find a natural remedy).
To make matters worse, one of the X-Rays revealed that she also has an enlarged heart which is causing a back-up of fluid in her lungs. Over the past four weeks she has had a series of three courses of antibiotics and cough syrups. The latest course of antibiotics finished this morning. I have been very concerned about her breathing and the rattling that I can hear when I put my ear against her chest. I know that she is taking 24 breaths per minute and has been for the last three days. At nights she battles to get comfortable and I can hear her wheezing very loudly. It gets much worse if she lies on her side. Last night I tried to loosen the fluid by cupping my hands and banging them on her side (I saw a video on how to do it on u-tube). She has 2ml of Bisolven Lictus 2X daily. Last night she coughed periodically throughout the night.
She had a problem with her appetite. I now suspect that this was because I was giving her all of her medications at the same time and they were making her feel sick, too sick to eat. She lost 2.5 kgs and weighed 15kg by last weekend. She was also dehydrated and she had to go on a drip for Saturday night. Sunday evening she was discharged with the third antibiotic and still had little appetite. Since then I have been feeding her a few small meals and giving her her medication at different times and only after the meal. Her appetite, thankfully, is almost back to normal.
She is a very important part of our family and I really don't want to lose her.
I would like to know if there are natural remedies for fluid on the lungs and the pinched nerve.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle for pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 1 drop in some water.
