Customer Question

What do you do for a poodle that has been peppered sprayed unnecessarily? Seems to be having discomfort in his nose. How long will this last?

It is best to flush all exposed skin copiously with cool water including the face and body. Unfortunately, any that may have gone up his nose will likely remain as an irritant until the burning stops. This typically lasts a few hours. If the discomfort is too much, you may wish to take him to your vet's office and have medications administered for the discomfort. That said, typically the symptoms are self-limiting and dogs show little, if any, lasting effects.
