Hi there,


How long is her nose running like this?


Any coughing or sneezing?


Is she exposed to other dogs or allergins?

How long? -- for the last 2-3 days.
No coughing or sneezing.
No exposure to other dogs. I don't think that there has been allergins.

Dear friend,


I am so sorry your girl is not feeling well. Dogs do gemt upper respiratories and even canine flu.


You can give her one mg of benedryl for every lb of her weight every 8 hours. If she does not feel better you can up it to two mg.


If she continues with these symptoms she should be seen by her vet for an antibiotic.


Please let me know how she is doing. I hope she is better very soon.


Blessings in 09. and always,
