Nose and Sinus Inflammation in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

The use of a humidifier can sometimes loosen nasal mucus, making it easier to drain. Chronic inflammation is rarely curable but it can be treated on an ongoing basis.

 

If there is a bacterial infection present, antibiotics are the first course of action. Otherwise, medication will be prescribed to treat the underlying cause for the inflammation.

 

Living and Management

 

Ongoing maintenance will be dependent upon the underlying medical condition.
