u mean ur dog had a runny nose?

in case of a runny nose, there r few possibly causes... presence of a foreign body in the nasal passage, allergy, or respiratory infection

however, probably most cases r due 2 allergies....

u can feed 1/4 tablet of echinacea, a herb in tablet form to overcome d allergies prob...

if d condition still persist after a few days or ur dog lost d appetite, then it might be infectious disease.....u gotta seek a vet for medication....

Well, he still sneeze sometimes.. Not veli often.. Sometimes cough too.. I dunno whether he got no appetite to eat or he started to be picky with his food.. I try to mix the kibble with some wet food product and he juz slurp it all in a few minutes... I think i better stick with the kibble after the wet food finish coz i dun wanna spoilt him.. Do u think this is a good idea?

hi,

well....what i did is, i'l cook chicken for my pups... just boiled the chicken in plain water. no added sugar or salt or anythg....leave it cold. then i'l serve it with kibbles...so, what they eat is like soupy kibbles....somehow i feel that this is better as it is not so dry...

but it really depends on u. whether u wan to do it this way or u only wan to feed dry kibbles..coz if u do dat for a long period of time, it will b difficult for you to go back to only dry kibbles..coz they will b used to soupy food....

hi,

how long has ur pup sick? less than a week? i think if it is less than a week, u don really need to bring him to vet.....see his condition lo...even we human don recover that fast rite?

normally, if your pup is sick, the vet will ask you to delay the jab for at least 1 week...so, if u r not sure, u can try to bring him on 15th oct n let the vet decide lo....

Izit normal for a puppy to sneeze.. I mean i can see droplets of water on the floor whenever he sneeze.. Not veli frequent.. About two or three times a day i would say.. izit something wrong with his health?
