You answer some questions on Monday about my 4 year old

Hi Dr.You answer some questions on Monday about my 4 year old Yorkie/Shitzu Zoe. I'm not sure if you remember. I also sent you the video of her reverse sneeze.I took Zoe to the vet the following morning and they agreed with you that it's probably post nasal drip and prescribed her Chlorphenarmarine (an allergy medicine). I've been giving her a half a pill twice a day and she is definitely better. However after all of this time she is still reverse sneezing when I bring her outside in the cold (around 50 or 55 degree's). I make sure to put her heavy sweater on. She also sometimes still reverse sneezes in the house. I've also recently heard another kind of loud regular sneeze that's more like a honk. Luckily her appetite is still good, but she doesn't have alot of energy. She mostly sleeps day and night. Normally if I don't play ball with her enough during the day she'll start running around the house really fast to get rid of excess energy.I have another appointment with the vet on Monday, but do you think I should wait until then, or try to get her into another vet tomorrow. I do have a date tomorrow, but will break it if you think it's important I get her in tomorrow. My feeling is she might have a sinus infection. If it's bacterial then they would treat with Antibiotics. I think there's also a stronger sinus medication with cortizone? I wouldn't want this to turn into Pneumonia. Also could she ever get a siezure or heart attack from the reverse sneeze? Up until now she's been extremely healthy and active and is only 4 years old. Right now she is resting and will probably sleep fine through the night with no trouble. It seems to happen more when I'm outside walking her in the elements.I look forward to hearing your response.Thanks!Tony

We have a miniature dachshund. She has been drooling,

We have a miniature dachshund. She has been drooling, drinking profusely and is smacking when she eats. This has been going on for 3 weeks. We have taken her to (2) different vets, had blood drawn and have had her checked out from head to tail. They have both checked her mouth thoroughly to see if she had some sort of burr or teeth issues. Nothing. Her breath is rancid. So bad that I can smell it when she gets near to me. To me, it's compatible to when a small child has a sinus infection and there is a terrible odor associated with it. I'm wondering what it could be. Something lodged in her nasal cavity?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dachshund can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dachshund's name?Customer: StellaJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Stella?Customer: Nothing. She's almost 5

I have a Shetie and he had bronchitis and a sinus infection.

Hi, I have a Shetie and he had bronchitis and a sinus infection. We took him to the vet last week and he gave him an antibiotic and shot for inflamation. He also gave him Rilexine 300 twice a day and Temarile P twice a day. He vomited Saturday morning and then again Monday morning this week. I called the Vet back and he said changed the antibiotic to Sulfa trim 480 twice a day. He kept vomiting yesterday, so I didnt give him any more medicine. Today hes weak and drank a lot of water and threw up again. I dont know if I just need to wait till the medicine is out of his system.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?Customer: A sheltieJA: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?Customer: yes, I sent my response.JA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the eat anything unusual?Customer: Chicken and riceJA: How old is the?Customer: Hes 8 years oldJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the?Customer: Nothing else.

My dog is having a similar problem that has also been going

My dog is having a similar problem that has also been going on for a couple of years. He has smelly mucus and sneezes constantly. Every once in a while he has bloody discharge and he has had a couple serious nose bleeds as a result of a sneeze attack. His breathe is usually stinky and has had teeth pulled in the past. I've tried antibiotics multiple times and although they seem to work the problem always creeps back. It's very frustrating and I'm not sure what to do any more.

My russell/fox terrier dog is not feeling well. She has

Hello,My ***** *****/fox terrier dog is not feeling well. She has green tinged mucus draining from rightnostril and has no interest in eating 1 1/2 days. I've ran a humidifier last night which helped getit to drain. I'm giving her water, but worried she won't eat she must be miserably congested and losing weight.What advise would you have for this condition? Should I take her to ER? Thank you.

I have a four year old English bulldog that is in super

I have a four year old English bulldog that is in super shape. However, seem seems to be suffering from a sinus infection or something. It started in yesterday with a lot of nasal drainage (more than normal) and by afternoon it started getting whitish. It has increased today, real white and a little thinner than pudding. She had real difficulty breathing last night while sleeping. She also is doing a lot of clearing her throat; per say. I have her on allergy medicine daily because of her nose and eyes watering all the time. My vet is closed and I was wondering if there was anything over the counter I could give her to help her symptoms through the weekend.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the bulldog. What is the bulldog's name?Customer: SooieJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sooie?Customer: No she is usually unusually active for being four years old. She has always had an issue with ear infections but I switch her to "grain free" foods and treats and she is doing much better now. She is really pretty healthy.
