A. Hi I am sorry your pet sounds like he has an upper respiratory infection. Green or yellow discharge coming from any orifice (mouth, nose, eys) is a sign of infection and should be promptly treated with antibiotics. I would recommend scheduling an appointment with your veterinarian and they will likely auscultate (listen) to his chest to ensure that his lung fields sound normal, and if they do this means the infection is most likely localized to the upper respiratory system and antibiotics will be prescribed in an attempt to clear the infection. Good luck at the vet's office!
