When did her cold symptoms start? Did she just have the yellow mucous once?
Customer
She started sneezing about 3 days ago about 4 times, sneezing about 3-4 times each day since, and only sneezed yellow mucus this afternoon
Thanks. If she continues to sneeze more yellow mucous she most likely has a sinus infection and she will need antibiotics. You can give her human Benadryl for the sneezing.
1 mg of Benadryl per each pound of dog every 12 hours. For example a 5 pound dog would take 5 mg of Benadryl every 12 hours.
Buy some human nasal saline drops. Put a couple drops in each nostril twice a day to help flush out mucous.
Keep a humidifier in the room with her
When you take a shower, bring her into the bathroom and let her breathe in the steam.
Add low sodium broth or water to her food to help increase her fluid intake.
Normally a cold resolves in 7-10 days
If she stops eating, has more of that yellow nasal drainage, has trouble breathing, coughs a lot, or she becomes very lethargic she should see the vet. Did all of that make sense to you? Do you have any other questions I may assist you with? If you are all set, please rate or accept my answer so I know how I did. That also lets the website know your question has had a response. Many Thanks
Customer
it all made sense, thank you Dr. Gaby!
My pleasure. Feel free to reply again later if you have any other questions or concerns : )
