It would be reasonable to assume that her "snuffling" concomitant with fever indicates upper respiratory infection, in particular, a rhinitis (inflammation inside her nose). This is usually treated with a broad spectrum antibiotic for 7-10 days. What was her rectal temperature, please? Normal is 100.5-102.5F.

I don't know. A vet took it and informed me that she had a bit of fever. She is on an antibiotic but she seems slow to improve. She's been on it just since Thurs. so I guess I need to be more patient. Thanks for the info. Rosy is my best friend.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Thank you. Yes, be patient with Rosy. I want to see a positive response to the tincture of time and the antibiotic within the first week of therapy. I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience.
