Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

Has he been around other dogs at all?

Does he seem to be struggling to breathe at all?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
he has been aroun other dogs,
No breathing issues, no pooping issues no food or water intake issues. He is running around , playing barking nothing changed in his energy level - just nose discharge and little eye discharge which he always had / eyes are white not red.

Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

Sounds to me like your boy may have a bit of an upper respiratory infection going on.

As a general rule, any time you see greenish discharge from anything it's a little infection, which means it needs to be treated with antibiotics, so he'll need to see his vet tomorrow when they open.

That being said...since he hasn't had any change in behavior or eating/drinking, I don't feel like this requires a trip to an emergency vet or anything....you can absolutely wait until your own vet opens tomorrow and give them a call. A few days worth of antibiotics, and he'll be right as rain.

I hope this helps.
