My almost 5 month old pitbull has been congested and snores…

Customer Question
My almost 5 month...

My almost 5 month old pitbull has been congested and snores loudly since day one...he threw up a couple times that was green and has had green runny diahrrea. He also eats everything in sight which I am sure is normal because he is teething.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

Well I have two puppies brother and sister and they are into everything from toilet paper to furniture

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Rocky

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Rocky?

Well the Mother died 4 weeks after giving birth due to gestational diabetes, but other than that he has been to my vet had all his shots and she said he was healthy at every visit but she wasn't looking for anything specific either.

Can you share video of the congestion/snoring you're hearing?

Can you also share a picture of Rocky's nose showing his nostrils?

When did the vomiting begin and the diarrhea?

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?
