Brusselranian Q&A

I have an 8 month old Shihpoo who seems to have what I assume is a post nasal drip issue. He will do a lot of swallowing and funny breathing thru his nose and this happens a lot at night. Last night he actually got sick. Is this a sinus / allergy? Is it something I should be concerned about because it seems to scare him? Is there something I can do for him? Any information you can provide me will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Hi there... we too have experienced the same with our dog... we upgraded our air and water system and that helped alot... our first house had carpet and that seemed to really make it worse. It's been less now with the house we have - no carpet, one area rug and he has done better. I generally feel this breed has a sinus problem that make there eyes water more in cold weather too.


Hello: I have a Shihpoo as well, she is 17 months old now. She has symptoms consistent with Trachea Collapse; which sounds a lot scarier than it is- with proper prevention or treatment, of course. The symptoms you have described sound similar to those experiencing Trachea Collapse, a common and manageable condition in small breed dogs. I would look into that, just to be sure; that way further worsening of symptoms could be managed. Good Luck and Best Wishes:))
