I have an English bulldog and he’s been doing this backward…

Customer Question
I have an English...

I have an English bulldog and he’s been doing this backward sneezing thing today. He’s got a bit of a runny nose and a touch of a wheezing sound when he’s breathing. He’s eating normally. I was thinking of giving him Mucinex Dm.

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

Newt, he’s 8 1/2

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

He’s healthy. We just took him to the vet last week for a nail trim so I thought he may have kennel cough, but he’s not coughing.
