Our 4 year black and tan has mucus in her nose at night. Her

Our 4 year black and tan has green mucus in her nose at night. Her nasal passages inside her nose seem swollen also, her nose gets crusty and she her nose gets plugged. We have been to 2 different vets and they have tried several rounds of antibiotics, which work short term but the mucus comes back after she has been off the antibiotics for a couple weeks. Any suggestions?

My 3 year old whippet has been coughing and sneezing months

My 3 year old whippet has been coughing and sneezing for 6 months now. He is well in himself apart from this and still eats and plays normally. He has had lots of investigations and treatment under our own vet and with the Royal Vet College and still no better. They ruled out nasal mites, tumour etc and have carried out a nasal wash out (twice) in case of foreign bodies and a lung wash out. He has had 3 courses or antibiotics and steroids and current treatment is a strict exclusion diet - but he seems worse rather than better on this and sneezes out thick globules and is permanently trying to clear his throat (that is what it sounds like). Vets do not seem to know what it is and are currently working with Rhinitis. Any idea what we can do to help our poor little fella?

I have a 4 mo old and 7yo bernese mtn dog. The 4 mo old was

I have a 4 mo old and 7yo bernese mtn dog. The 4 mo old was diagnosed with giardia when we took her in for her first puppy exam at 10 weeks (we had had her for 2-1/2 wks already). She was treated w/ a round of metronidazole that came from the breeder. I had forgotten to bring her fecal to her 14 wk check and didn't think much of it until she came back positive again at her 18wk check. The same day as her 18wk check, our 7yo was brought in for minor surgery to remove some gum lesions and a growth on his inner ear. During surgery, they found nasal mites which he had had in the past (several years ago). They injected ivermectin and recommended 2 more treatments 3wks apart. He has post-surgically been on a round of clindamycin bid for 7d. When the pup's fecal came back positive for giardia, they recommended 3 days of panacur. When we picked up her script, we brought in the boy's fecal to see if he was also infected. He too came back positive so we went back to pick up a script for him. I had read that it is often recommended to put them on a longer course and retreat after 10 days regardless of fecal testing. So my vets had agreed to a 6 day treatment followed by 10 days off followed by 6 more days of treatment. They are 2 days off in starting treatment due to the timing of the exams. Neither dog were particularly symptomatic - stools were not firm but were well formed. Appetites have been good and both are alert/active (with long periods of napping, i.e. normal). We try our best to pick up all their potty but in truth we probably get about 80% (they have a dog door and 1-1/2 acres of the property are fenced). We are close to 100% for the girl but have realized that she goes after his potty since we won't let her eat her own. So my questions are: 1) Will this regimen take care of any reinfections from missed potty pickups? (i.e. what is the life cycle of the giardia or is it always expected that some of the cysts will stay dormant until the opportune environment presents? Are there any contraindications to treating this aggressively? 2) Will the panacur eliminate the need for the boy's ivermectin retreatments? Are there any concerns with multiple meds (Clindamycin, Ivermectin, Panacur for the boy; 5way vaccination, rabies vaccination for pup; both due for heartworm med on the first of the month) 3) Should we isolate them from socializing with other dogs and inform their friends of their diagnosis or only if there had been opportunity for other dogs to eat our dogs' stool (unmonitored play). I don't know how prevalent it is in our area We live in northern Utah & the pup came from Lake Tahoe area. There are deer prevalent in our area, and we do hike them to areas where they drink from mountain springs. I am at a loss as to how to keep them from potential exposures in the future even if we are to get them giardia free now.
