He is always sneezing, thick mucus from just one side of nose & sometimes cough.He is a male Cocker Spaniel 9 yrs. old about 30 lbs.Is there anything safe I can try over-the-counter? Can I increase doze of Benedryl or can Zertec be used?

She has an area at the front of her mouth that is red. Gums

She has an area at the front of her mouth that is red. Gums look inflamed. She has had this before and it seemed to clear up quickly. Also there is often the smell of blood on her breath, though I never see any blood. She is 15 and a half and had several teeth removed last year.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: I have never, ever seen any blood. I only smell that metallic blood smell on her breath. I noticed the blood smell actually two years ago and asked the vet about it at one of our visits and she didn't have any reason for it.

My 6 yr old standard wire-haired dachshund has been

Hi there,My 6 yr old standard wire-haired dachshund has been investigated for persistent sneezing with mucus from his nose. The resultant diagnosis is non-allergic chronic rhinitis.As a complication from investigations at a specialist practice 10 days ago (CT scan, rhinoscopy, nasal biopsy), he got pneumonia and was hopsitalised locally (incl oxygen) for a few days.He is currently taking Synulox and Metacam and doing much better, he is bright and the mucus is changing from a yellow/green sticky substance to the normal egg white consistency with streaks of green which is how he was before the investigations. So now we return to look at treating the rhinitis.The specialist centre want to change his antibiotics to either doxycycline or azithromycin for a 2-3 month basis, whilst continuing with the metacam, but I have concerns.Firstly with the doxycycline, I have read numerous alarming reports about dogs dying or requiring euthanasia from even 1-2 doses, plus liver damage and burnt/scarred oesophagus and stomach ulcers'.With azithromycin I read that 'The most common potential side effects associated with azithromycin include gastrointestinal problems like abdominal discomfort, vomiting and diarrhea. Angioedema and jaundice can also result from taking azithromycin, although the chances are rare'.Neither of these options seem worth the risk for a snotty nose?At this point I have to mention that last month he ate a ball and had his stomach opened up to remove the pieces. He became allergic to the stiches and had swelling. His scar has healed quite tightly across the bottom of his ribcage and he sometimes has trouble stretching out. I am concerned his stomach is still healing, or at least that it may be sensitive.Are there any other less anti-biotics that I could consider which are less harsh on his body? He has had so many sedations, anaesthesia's, x-rays, scans, ultrasounds and procedures over the last two months I want to do my best to protect him.If you need any other info please let me know.Kind regards,Louise

Shock collar put on too tight and burrowed it's way into my

Shock collar put on too tight and burrowed it's way into my dogs neck. It smells really bad. I'm cleaning it up just wondering what's the best thing to do after clean up?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Haylee. 12.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Haylee?Customer: She is super high energy and I can't believe this hasn't slowed her down. I feel awful. She is prone to ear infections but her ears are perfect right now. She has sensitive skin. Once in a while she tends to have a dry patch here or there. Right now since her neck, she has been licking her two front legs like crazy but I'm assuming it is because she can't get to her neck. This is the third day I smelled that awful smell and finally figured out what was wrong so it's fresh. She has no collar on now.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
