Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with almost 15 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with Buzz today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. You may see a phone call request that is automatically generated by the website. I am available by phone but if you prefer to text please ignore the request and we will continue the chat via text. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding Buzz. Sorry to hear about his congestion. Are you able to take a picture of the eye? Has he been around any other dogs?

One sec

Okay no problem. Let me know when you have attached the photo. Thanks again.

We recently clean him up

He is sneezing a lot

Okay thanks for the picture, I can see the discharge coming from the eye. Has he been around any other pets?

Not this week but he was a few days at his day care 10 days ago

Okay I appreciate the information. Based on what you are describing, it does sound like he may have some early signs of an upper respiratory infection. If that is what it is then it may be from the day care. Once confirmed by your veterinarian, usually typically treatment may involve antibiotics and possible an ointment for the eye as well.

could I provide him some thing right now for releving the symtoms

There are a couple of things that you can try. Sometimes it helps him being in a bathroom with a steamed shower. Then can sometimes help alleviate congestion in some dogs. You can also can gently clean the eye with a saline wash which may help alleviate some irritation.

Yeah that's what I am currently doing, could I give him liquid Benadryl?

Benadryl can help with dogs with allergies. I usually don't see much of an effect with dog's that have congestion outside of making them feeling a little drowsy so they can rest some.

That's good, I have some here, I already have an appointment with his vet but it's on Wednesday. In the meantime I will try to get him as comfortable as he can be

Okay sounds like a plan. Let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

If you need further assistance for this problem feel free to ask a follow up and I'll be
glad to help.
