My Fuji had labored breathing. We discovered that she had fluid caused by a mass that was found to be Mediastinal lymphoma. She has been receiving chemo for 10 months and you can't even tell she is sick.
My VooDoo had a couple of episodes of labored breathing and the xray showed a small amount of fluid. He was given antibiotics for a sniffle and has been fine since.
