Hi, JACustomer. Thanks for your question.

Sneezing blood can be a very concerning sign.

If the sneezing and wheezing has been going on for some time, this may be due to allergies. If the sinuses have become inflamed enough, they may have started bleeding and, thus, you're seeing blood. However, we also must worry about underlying conditions like ehrlichia, a tick borne disease. Bleeding disorders and also neoplasia in the sinus cavities. I would recommend having Piper examined, for this reason.

Failing this, it may be worth trying some antihistamines to see if this helps with the sneezing and wheezing. You can use 1-2mg/pound of body weight of benadryl every 8-12 hours to see if this helps. If it does not, we're back to the necessity of needing to have her examined.

I hope this helps.
