Is there something I can do?
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

At this time of year in most areas of the country, your dog would be sneezing paroxysmally as you've described because he has inhaled a plant awn - a foxtail, usually. Please see image. He needs to be brought to an on-call vet to be anesthetized and have that foreign body extracted from his nose.

This isn't something you can treat at home. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
