    Post Wilson's right Nostril is folding in

    Early last week Emma had what seemed to be a cold (snotty nose) but she's fine now. Last week Wilson got it and had snotty nose but no green snot just white and constant discharge from the nose. The snot's dried up quite a bit but my concern is his breathing. His right nostril has folded in as you can see from the picture. While he can breath and is not labored in breathing, last night he was actually opening his mouth a bit to breath in and making the gurgling sound.

    I called the my vet on Friday and he said NOT to give him Benadryl if he wasn't snotty as that can actually make it harder for him to breath (FYI, he's a well-known bully vet here). He said to spray his nostril with nose spray which I've been doing (and that is a VERY hard task with Wilson). I've been having to sneak up on him when he's sleeping to do it. He's quite strong and there's no holding his head still. Wilson also choked on some kibble just a bit ago (Mike saw that he was having troubles and his tongue was stuck out and white). I stuck my fingers down his throat and sure enough there was kibble there. I also gave him a squirt of lemon juice to break up his phlegm.

    Lets just say Wilson is not happy with his Mama right now. I'm going to drop him off at the vet tomorrow morning on my way into work.

    Here's a few different shots I just took.

    I bet everyone's going to go look at their bully's nose now. We're hoping it's just allergies too, that's what my vet said but to be safe I'm dropping him off for a lookie.

    If I go to give him a kiss, he flings his head the other way..... He's so pissed at me! I'm the disciplinary in our house.

    Awwww. Poor Wilson.

    I admit it; I looked at noses. Bea's is dry and crunchy on top but she hates the Bully Balm I put on it. ha ha ha

    I hope Wilson is OK. Tis allergy season...but choking on kibble...that's scary to me......

    all three of my bullies noses kinda look like that, but when they get neutered they're having rhinoplasty done to make them even more beautiful . Poor Remy has to get his heart surgery, boy parts cut off and his nares done!

    You know I was just going through some pics to post in Howard's Ears post in the general section and came across an early pic of Wilson a few month back and his nostril looks the same. Mike's been saying that his nose on that side seems swollen so maybe this cold he has is just making it worse. He's also been doing a lot of reserve breathing, snorting inward lately.

    He was 5 months here.

    Good info to know, thanks Kelly & Christine. Looks like he's not alone then and now that he's gotten older it's just affecting him more. I'll talk to the vet about this.
