beagle: 10-year-old..year-old female..sneezing --..seasonal allergy…

Customer Question
Hi! I have a...
Hi! I have a 10-year-old female beagle who, in typical beagle fashion, has numerous lumps and bumps on her body, a few of which were biopsied over the years and determined to be benign fatty tumors. For about the past year, however, she has been sneezing -- very productively, with thick mucus expelled nearly each time. I had hoped it would be a seasonal allergy-type thing, but the time of year doesn't seem to matter. At any rate, she has been barking much less recently. I'm concerned that she may have polyps or tumors in her nasal passages or throat. There are no other signs that would indicate a cancer -- she eats to beat the band (no change there!) and can maintain her airway; there is no weight loss -- but wondered what the odds were that this would be something benign at this stage in her life. Or maybe what else it could be? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!!

Hello, I'm Dr. Bob.
Judging from your description, it sounds as if Tubby may have a chronic sinus infection.
This infection may be the primary problem or a problem secondary to another condition like a tumor, polyp or foreign body. Do you know if foxtail grass grows near you?
