One dog has been snorting for several days , then a few days ago all the other 3 started sneezing. They otherwise act normal. It is like they have a cold . Is that possible

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Mabel , Peanut, Lilly , and Junior . There are 4

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mabel?
