Question 11 year Old Cocker, Rapid Breathing


I recently noticed that my dog Simba's breathing was very rapid, about 50-60 per minute, higher at times and he did gag at night while sleeping once. He let out a foamy saliva like substance and there was a small drop of blood next to it. Now he has a small wound next to his ear which is bleeding so the blood could be from that as the saliva like substance was white with no blood stain in it. His vet says it could be indicative of congestive heart failure but from what i've read, there are more symtoms to that and the only one i've noticed is rapid breathing. No swelling, no appetite problems etc. For now our vet has put him on an ACE inhibitor and a diuretic and we are getting further investigations done. He is also on anti biotics in case he has an infection.

I am from India and can't find any veterinary cardiology specialists here so I was hoping someone here could give me a little advice. I will really appreciate the help. Thanks a lot.
