I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. This is a curious happening. I can envision her blood pressure rising when panicked and capillaries then bursting in her nose but after calming down she should have normalized rather than becoming anorexic. She might remain dyspneic (difficult breathing) if a significant amount of blood remained in her nasal passages.

Alternatively, she suffers from a bleeding dyscrasia - an anticoagulant rodenticide poisoning , thrombocytopenia (decreased blood platelets), or perhaps hemophilia. Can you tell me, please, if any testing for bleeding disorders has been performed? May I have an update on your puppy, please?
