    Default Sneezing

    Frankie (10) who's been with us for just under a week has started sneezing a lot. Is that a cold? Or a reaction to the new house? Should I be worried? He eats and is otherwise healthy and jolly.

    How is Frankie doing? I'm at a loss when it comes to sneezing, but if it's excessive you might want to call the vet.

    I have one cavalier girl who sniffs in all the corners where dust is bound to collect during the week, and she seems to sneeze once or twice a day. We have a swiffer vacuum for the kitchen, where cavvie hair seems to collect fastest. Could it be that Frankie is sniffing dust, then sneezing?

    Default sneezing

    Thank you for your reply, Cathy. Frankie has got a lot better. He still sneezes a bit after snuffling around my dusty corners... When I posted the question, he must have had a cold because his sneezing was very productive! He also licked it up afterwards - my disgusting, cute little dog...

    Keep a very close eye n him. This could easily be kennel cough and could easily turn into pneumonia which in older dogs or puppies or immuno compromised dogs, can quickly turn fatal. If he is still sneezing I would at the very least ring your vet and ask if you should bring him in. Sneezing is not generally a normal behaviour.

    You got me quite worried now...so, I'll keep a good eye on him. I do think though it has improved. Frankie is very happy and eats, sleeps and plays well.
    What is kennel cough?
