I have a question about my 8-9 year old rescue jack Russell. For over a year now she has had a runny left nostril. It constantly streams and in the past 14-16 months it bled a few times. More recently, starting in June when she was spayed, her nose bled every day. She would cough and sneeze a lot and continually try to clear her throat.
Obviously concerned we took her to the vets and he sedated her, did an x-ray and flushed out the nose to clear any third parties!
She had no visa me anomalies and nothing came out. Thinking it might be an infection he prescribed antibiotics and that seemed to work.
Except, now it has begun bleeding again. I can't think what else could be causing it except perhaps an allergy, although to what I have no idea!
Has anyone been in a similar situation or had a dog with similar symptoms?
Apart from this she is absolutely fine in herself. She eats (too) well and drinks often and had no problem eliminating.
Any help/ideas/suggestions would be very gratefully revived!
