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.

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
