My dog has just started sneezing and has a runny nose. Been

My dog has just started sneezing and has a runny nose. Been going on since last Friday (10th March). Her eyes are watery and red-rimmed and she also has a cough - one which the vets couldn't sort out, even though she has had about £3,000 spent on her in tests and veterinary visits. She didn't cough though until last week. The first night her nose watered so much she soaked her pillow and her nose was bubbling with water during the night. My vet has prescribed anti-biotics (Ronaxan 100mg - 1.1/2 tablets once per day)which have made no difference at all and they have now prescribed anti-inflammatory (Rimadyl 50mg - 1/2 tablet twice daily) but these don't appear to be having any effect either. My dog is 14 years in April and has been very fit and well until last Friday. She is an active Cocker Spaniel x Lurcher and not at all overweight. Can you suggest anything, either in the way of what it could be or how to treat her. I would be so grateful.

Our dog has a very sensitive stomach and eats RX food. She

Hello-our dog has a very sensitive stomach and eats RX food. She recently snuck some of our other dogs blue buffalo food and she had the telltale "raspberry jam" diarrhea we've seen before. She's been diagnosed with HGE before. I texted the woman who breeds, shows and judges this breed and she suggested 5-10 CC of pepto and pedialyte for over night until we can get her to the vet in the morning. She said if the blood is bright red or she seems any worse, take her to the er vet, of course. I took her advice and we gave her a little bit of pepto and a couple of syringes of pedialyte, too. Now I read the comment about it making bleeding worse and I'm terrified.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: She's a Silken Windhound and she will be 3 in August.
