I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner, Ethyl. You've described a rhinitis and possibly sinusitis in Rosie. Which breed is she, please?

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 27 days ago.

The inflammation in her upper respiratory tract can have an allergic, infectious, or immune-mediated etiology.

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 27 days ago.

Rosie's vet can examine a sample of the mucus in an attempt to clarify its cause.

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 27 days ago.

In some cases, scoping and biopsy of the nasal passage will be necessary for clarification.
