Q. Hello Dr My labradoodle has a runny nose , could he have a common cold like a human ?
DESTINI R. HOLLOWAY, DVM
A. Yes they an be similar. But more likely your pet has a condition called Rhinitis, which can have multiple causes including allergies, which is the most common cause. I would have your oet examined by a veterinarian if this drainage continues beyond 1-2 days for a professional examination of the nares and chest to ensure no abnormalities with the lung fields also. Treatment for rhinitis is typically antibiotics and if allergies are thought to be the cause, removal of the allergen.
