I am adding this photo so that other dog owners will know what to look for and bring their dog to the vet ASAP. She had labored breathing at times and a hacking cough like in this video. My dog had symptoms for close to a year and they got worse over time, but no one diagnosed her until it was too late. She was diagnosed about a week before she died with Pulmonary Hypertension. She was almost 15 years old.

    I am so sorry that your little pug, Annie, passed away from this dreadful
    disease. I have heard of other canines having this disease as well as cats.
    I was diagnosed with pulmonary Hypertension in 2008, since then my life has
    changed dramatically. I must say this is a horrible disease to live with. I
    am on transtracheal oxygen 24/7, I take over 40 pills a day and have a life
    support medication running through my body 24/7 via catheter; all this to
    keep me alive. I am thankful to be here, but it has been a difficult
    journey. Watching this video of poor Annie brought tears to my eyes. No
    animal nor human should have to suffer like that. Sending my regards and
    blessings to you and your family. Breathe easy and fly high sweet Annie the
    pug <3

    I’m so sorry for your loss. My pug passed away 2 days ago, but her vet
    didn’t tell me the cause of death. But it looks like she was suffering from
    heart failure after watching this video. Thank you so much for sharing. I
    wish I found this video earlier.
