You really have to know what's "normal" for him. If his sides aren't
heaving and his respiration rate (non-purring) isn't over 50-60, then he
should be ok to wait until tomorrow.
See if you can watch him breathe while he's sleeping. See how much his
sides move & count his rate.
If he only did one hiccup, then it's probably nothing to be concerned about.
Remember too that they pick up on our tension so try & relax a bit :-)

> Well tomorrow I take Gizmo back to the cardiologist to check and see if
the fluid in his lungs is clearing up- last week was worse. I am finding
myself just watching his breathing constantly. He did this hicup type of
thing, and I just sat there watching to see if it was a cough. I have been
pretty consumed with his breathing- then I question if it is normal or not.
Hopefull I et a sense of peace with our visit tomorrow. I am wondering if
this weird brathing continues do I tak ehim in? The cardiologist is 1 hour
away, but the vet is close. Am waiting ti see if he sleeps and relaxes cause
that is good right?- Aimee
