He will get a clear discharge from his nose mostly when he is sleeping also his ears start bothering him. Its like a upper respiratory problem. He will also even cough once in awhile. I have a wall heater in my house and this happens to him in the winter when i use it. I try to keep a humidifier on at night. I give him Benadryl sometimes and that will help a little.
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 1 month ago

How much Benadryl is given at each dosage? How frequently?

Have you tried any other antihistamines?

What symptoms do you see of his ears bothering him?

He gets less than a quarter of a 25 mg tab. I ask a question about a dose on azithromycin and i have not got an answer from you. I will be asking for my money back. I have my answer now from my own vet,
