Default Yowls and Congestive Heart Disease

I'm going to describe my dogs last days in
case someone should google for this info.
A 15 year old Tibetan-Terrier, he started
coughing last summer. We put him on meds
to decrease water retention in the lungs.
Everything was going fairly good but a few
weeks ago he suddenly got worse. The vet
was going to increase the dosage but we
never got around to that. He would just keel
over at times and yowl loudly, this happened
maybe a dozen times in a week. He lost bladder
control and would often just stand totally
disoriented. We took him to the vet for a last
time today.

I'd like to know if he had been yowling because
of heart failure pain, from pain from the act of
collapsing, or because of panic? I have seen
dogs hit by cars and even badly shot and
yowling in agony, it's impossible to bear such
vocalizations. I also know that cardiac infarction
can be very painful but this was probably not
that. Severe arrhythmia or fibrillation while not
painful in my experience can cause severe panic
and I don't think one could make any sounds
during such episodes.
