Our Poodle who is 11 has had a sudden cough come on 2 nights ago…

Our Poodle who is 11 has had a sudden cough come on 2 nights ago, we visited the vet and he was given treatment for Kennel Cough. In the past hours he has got worse and now can’t stand up under his own weight (falls over – but is remaining unconscious) and is breathing heavy It is night here in Australia so no vet is available. what should we do over night and what could be wrong?

…did your vet check his heart?  i had a friend lose her Doberman to something called dilated cardiomyopathy, and symptoms were similar.
