Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I am sorry to hear the luttle one is having problems.

I can make a couple of suggestions that may help.

You can try some Pedilatric Saline drops called Little Noses. Place on drop in each nostril 3 times a day. This will help with the congestion. As far as for the allergies. You can try one of two over the counter medications. Chlor-trimeton can be given 2-4mgs every 12 hours or you can give 1 mg per pound of body weight of Plain Benedryl every 8 hours. They both may make the dog a little sleepy, but if allergies will help. Please hit reply to discuss thisinformation.
