What to do next

Keep your dog calm and prevent them from pawing at their face

  • Keep your dog calm and quiet, and restrict exercise to short bathroom breaks.
  • You can gently massage your dog’s throat to help them clear the irritation, but any other at-home remedy should be checked with your veterinarian as it may further stress your dog.
  • If your dog is pawing at their face a lot, put a cone/socks on them to prevent them from traumatizing their skin.

 

Why it’s high priority

Constant sneezing or nasal discharge combined with sneezing indicates an underlying condition

  • While sneezing on its own is unlikely an emergency, based on the other signs you’ve selected, your dog could have a condition that requires veterinary attention as soon as possible.
  • If your dog is pawing at their nose a lot in addition to sneezing, it’s a sign of irritants in their nasal passage.
  • Some of the conditions we are worried about include nasal infection, foreign body, and tumor.
