My puppy is 7 1/2 months old red heeled, rat terrier, and Australian

Customer Question

My puppy is 7 1/2 months old red heeled, rat terrier, and Australian shepherd mix. 10 days ago she was spayed. 5 days ago she began "sneezing and blowing air out her nose. Every day she seems to be doing it more and more. She has always loved to smell everything, indoors and outdoors. Could this sniffing and sneezing be a result of allergies,something stuck in her nazzel passage or a result of her surgery?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the rat terrier's name?
Customer: No temperature, nose is always wet, blood return in gums is good
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your rat terrier?
Customer: Her name is*****
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
