huffing....snorting

Postby myboys » Wed Jul 23, 2014 4:47 am

My Butchie has been huffing and snorting but that is not so unusual.....but now it is almost constant along with sneezing! Slight discharge from his nose and off to the docs we go (this morning). Looking online sounds like it is either an infection or obstruction. Poor guy just is feeling poorly. Anyone else have this experience?

During the allergy season, my boy (and my girl cat) have reverse sneezing that happens. This is not a constant or consistent thing,however. Off to the vet is probably not a bad plan.

My 9-month-old caught a cold once when he was much younger. Aside from the snorting & sneezing, he also licked his nose more than usual (it was runny). It took a few days before he completely recovered without any medical intervention. He slept lots, but that's normal for young pups. He also retained a healthy appetite, so I assumed it wasn't anything serious.
