Hi all!

 

Mugwai (3yrs, male) has, on occasion, had a short 'attack' of backward sneezing.  Following some research we find this to be normal if only very occassional.  However, Mugwai has started to have 'fits' two or three times a day - poor chap looks terrified.  He has developed a slight, clear nasal discharge which was white this morning.  ANY IDEAS?

As we live in the tropics, and the vets here seem to have paid their way through med. school (opinions differ SUBSTANTIALLY), there are times when ticks are abundant.  I have done a bit of searching on the w.w.web for tick bourne disease symptoms and have not gathered too much info, other than perhaps nasal discharge.  Loss of appetite is definitely not one of his symptoms, lethargy hasn't been noticed and he seems to be in no pain.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

If the pug has Pharyngeal gag reflex (reverse sneezing), my vet recommends:

-lightly massaging the throat

-feeding a few pats of butter, then some warm broth.

Good luck to you.

 

Thanks M.  

I do the throat rub thing too.

I would check that he has not got a respiratory infection, just in case. Pugs are notorious for chest infections so could be having a small infection in his nose, a cold for instance. I would try and find a Vet that you CAN trust as Pugs seem to require one on and off and you cannot get away without one. He may get an eye infection and believe me without assistance you cannot get by. Don't for goodness sake get a Vet that your Pug will fall in love with, mine has. My hand is never put of my pocket keeping the love affair going, so much so his girlfriend says he can just go and visit.

Pugs you have to love 'em/

We have a suspicion he has a cold of sorts.  Taking him to a recommended clinic to see what could be said...

Happy to hear your news, not happy about the cold but that you have found a Vet you can trust. I was going to suggest that you see if there is a WSPA clinic near you, they do have them specially in poorer parts of the World,

"Yes it is so hard to watch one of out beloved pets leave us.  I stayed with all mine till the end, and it is so hard, but I think they feel us there, and it makes it so much easier for them in the end.  Or at least I hope it does. "

"Yes I think everyone should get one of DI's knit pugs when a loved one goes on to the rainbow bridge.  I need to convince her to knit some non pug ones for my Jake and hopefully not too soon Abbey. :("
