Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.
With both dogs affected this sounds most suspicious to be a contagious problems such as infectious tracheobronchitis (kennel cough) or canine influenza. We certainly cannot rule out allergies, but highly unusual to have two dogs affected. Since there is discoloration to the nasal discharge, this is an indication an antibiotic would be ideal to help clear this problem, which means they should probably go in for a visit to their veterinarian. This becomes more important if you start seeing other symptoms such as lethargy, reduced to no appetite, or coughing.
The Benadryl is a good idea and might help. Will not hurt. But it may not help this resolve.
