My 14 w/o dachshund is so congested in his nose that he cannot breath. My vet has suggested clarifying, benadryl, etc. He takes Theophylline. Impossibly related to his teeth but he will not survive a cleaning or general anesthsia. He miserable. I have humidifiers on him all the time. I take him in a bathroom full of steam it doesn't make much difference. He sound, so wet and congested in his nose and sinuses. Please help.

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear Ernie is having so much trouble breathing. Have you tried Afrin nose drops? You can put 1 drop in each nostril a few times a day. I would also ask your vet about a medication called Cerenia. It is an anti-nausea medication that is also a great decongestant.

he was given Cerenia 1/4 tablet 60 mg. They did help a little especially when he is as bad as he is today. I thought I had 1 dose left but I don't. What can I do to help him until Mon.?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I've tried to put in card info so I can talk to you multiple times and keep getting message stating card info needs to be updated. I even tried a different card. I give up.
