Runny Nose in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

The condition will not require hospitalization unless surgery is recommended, or if an exploratory scope of the nasal cavity or the sinuses is required. If it is determined that the cause is fungal, your veterinarian will prescribe medication.

 

Living and Management

 

Keep your pet warm and make sure they get enough to eat and drink. In addition, keep the nasal passages clean, especially if there is a discharge or chronic sneezing. Finally, keep your dog’s living area clean.
