Since Sammy has been seen by a couple of veterinarians, I am going to assume that he has been treated with antibiotics with no response. Please correct me if that statement is wrong. Nasal discharge and coughing can be a sign or a respiratory infection (upper or lower respiratory tract). However, it can also be a sign of lung worm infection. Lungworm infections typically have very mucoid nasal discharges that do not respond to antibiotics. We see lungworms in certain regions or the country. You should have him tested. Certain deworming medications are used to treat. What state are you in?
