    Default Help! Brembo has a cold/allergies/runny nose

    Help guys! Not a major thing (at least I hope not), but hopefully you can help me.

    First off-- Brembo DOES have a vet appointment scheduled for this Saturday, so if it's not a major issue, i'd like to wait until Saturday to get him checked out.

    He's being doing his latest pig impersonation lately. It seems like he may have a cold. I would claim allergies, but he's not itching or red or swollen.

    He is sneezing now and then, but it definitely seems like he has lots of mucus built up in the nose area, as his breathing seems a little blocked sometimes, and when he eats he snorts loudly afterwards like he's trying to get air.

    The problem (or good thing) is that it's not happening all the time, just in spurts. So sometimes he's breathing fine and other times I'll notice a wet nose, sneeze, or snorting bout.

    Can you guys help?
    • The temperature just DROPPED in our area (Connecticut) so it could be seasonal allergies
    • I just (4 days ago) increased his food by 1 cup each day
    • I just switched his food from all grain-free to some grain / some non-grain

    Thanks so much!! It's so disheartening to see my little guy snort snort snort when I know it's because he's have difficulty breathing.

    I wish I could help you, I know how frustrating it is. Otis is a runny nose too. Thick, green mucousy snots running down his nose... sometimes. It's not all the time, couple times a day at most. Doctor checked him out and thought maybe sinus infection. She gave him antirobe (antibiotic) which he's taken for a month with no change at all.

    I'm sure someone else will have great advice. The only thing that I can tell you is to always have a pocket full of tissues.

    For me, her name was Abby

    There has been a rise in dog flu going around, so that's what he may have and will need some antibiotics to help get rid of it, if he has it.

    Hi Everyone,

    Turns out Brembo has a SINUS INFECTION. The vet said he's contagious to other dogs until his course of antibiotics runs out, approximately 7 days.

    He's taking Clavamox 2x a day for 7 days. Any suggestions or thoughts on this? Anyone with experience?

    Awww poor baby! He will be fine in a couple days once the antibitoc starts working. I have never dealt with this but it sounds like you have in under control. M

    Glad he is on the road to recovery, and you found out what it was. Hope he feels better soon.

    Dang a sinus infection? I guess I never thought a bully could get one of those. Poor thing! I also didn't think sinus infections were contagious, at least in people. Lots of to Brembo!!!

    Sinus infection, contagious??? Really? Sounds more like it would be kennel cough, if he is contagious? Either way... I hope he is feeling better real soon. Give him from me!

    Yeah I think I'll have to get a 2nd opinion regarding the contagious part. I had no idea!
