JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: He is a year old Finnish spitz make. He is my show puppy

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me: Any nasal or eye discharge? What color? From one or both nostrils?Any chance he got hay or anything in the barn up his nose?Are his gums pink or pale/white?Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?
