Q. My dog has heavy nose bleed that's diff to stop. Gets worse when he sneezes. Vet says it's just the heat. But at times he bleeds more than 2x/wk.

A. Nose bleeds in dogs really need investigating as they can be related to serious causes, such as tumour or problems with blood clotting . I think you should bring him back or have him referred for further investigations.

Answered By

A. He should have some investigation if this happens on regular basis. Nose endoscopy and blood test for clotting disorder is usually the first step.
