Q. Ive had a rescue puppy for less than 24hr. Was told she had shots and was checkd at vet. Her nose is almost constant runny, clear??? WAT DO I DO.PLZ

Answered By

A. It is likely that your puppy has upper airways infection. As long as the discharge is clear / watery and your puppy is fine otherwise (eating, drinking, playful, toileting as normal) you can clean his nose every few hours and wait 24-48hrs. If you noticed that the discharge is becoming green/thick or your dog starts to cough or look unwell you should take her to your local vets.
