My dog, a black lab 12 years old was diagnosed with rhinitis

Customer Question

My dog, a black lab bitch 12 years old was diagnosed with rhinitis last year. She seems OK out on her walks and during the day but come evening she sneezes a lot and during the night wakens us with a choked nose and makes a horrible gurgling sound as if she is choking. We have used a nasal spray from the chemist which seems to help but will it do her any harm? I worry about her nasal passages. She gets medication from the vet which also helps for a while and we have an appointment in two days time which will hopefully relieve her.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

What ingredients are in the nasal spray?

Has her vet ever trialled her on an antihistamine (if she is worse after being out)?

Any decongestants to reduce her mucus?
