Customer Question

She is a 12lb chiweenie that has been congested and sneezing
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Punkin'
JA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: No. It has been a few weeks now. I've tried benedryl but it only helps temporarily.
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: Nothing else really. The only other thing she has started is I think it's called reverse sneezing.

Is there any nasal drainage? If so what does it look like?

How are her teeth gums? Any tartar, odor, or redness?

How often are you giving the benadryl?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Twice a day. She's had a runny nose at times. A few times when she's sneezed a lot of stuff has come out at once. No odor though.
Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 8 months ago.

So the drainage is clear and coming from both nostrils? How about her teeth? Any tartar or redness of the gum line?
