Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

How long ago was he sprayed with the weed killer?

How long has he had these signs?

What color is his nasal discharge? Is it from one nostril or both?
