Dog won't stop sneezing?

5 posts in this topic

I have a 3 year old brittany that in the last day or so has started to sneeze constantly. I know a number of the people in my house have been sick with colds lately, can that be passed on to a dog? Is this something I should be concerned about? My cousin had a 5 year old German Wirehair that died of some fungus he inhaled while hunting, and he said his dog sneezed a lot prior to the diagnosis. I wondering if this could be the same thing, and if I need to get him to the vet soon. He has been eating fine and his behavior hasn't seemed to change at all. Thanks!

My lab did this while pheasant hunting. When I looked, there was a piece of cattail stuck in her nostril. I pulled it out and she stopped sneezing. Check and see if there is something stuck in there.

I agree with gonefishing. If a dog is sneezing constatly there is usually something stuck in there

Almost no human diseases can pass to dogs because their body temp is higher. A human fever kills the virus, dogs don't even get it. They have their own version, but the sneezing is usually something stuck in the nose.

I was 'babysitting' a co-workers dog for 5 days late this fall and his shorthair was doing the EXACT same thing. It eventually began to include a little bloodspray w/ the sneezing. After a couple days though, lo and behold, a 3" long pencil-diameter stick shot out across my living room. The next day, an identically-sized piece came out w/ a sneezing fit as well. That was the end of it. It took 5-7 total days of sneezing to get the thing out...

Well after 2 trips to the vet, the dog has Lymes disease. I had him started on the meds on Friday, and by Sunday, he was up and about as normal already. I thought it was kinda odd for him to get it this late in the winter/spring. Has anyone else had it stay dormant in their dogs this long. So much for Frontline and the lymes vaccine. He has gotten both religiously and it did't stop a thing.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
