I found the cure for a sneezing Spaniel...

2 posts in this topic

We were out hunting Saturday evening, when my Springer started to sneeze violently - for a LONG time. In fact, we quit, it was so bad. He settled down a little - but every now and then would start hard sneezing again. This lasted to a lesser degree Sunday - and today. I emailed some of my training friends - and they suggested that I might go to the vet - because one time, one of their dogs got a small twig stuck in its nose.

So I go in - because he's sneezing this morning - even in the dog box in the back. I walk into the Vet - weigh him - he's quiet. A little nervous though - and drops some nuggets on the vets floor with some twigs in it from this weekend. But that's another story.

So - now he's quiet for awhile - not a sneeze. The Doc looks him over - says he looks great - not much they can do, blah, blah, blah. He gives me some meds for swelling and infection, just as a precaution - and to call him later if it persists and we have to do more indepth nasal investigation - 112.00 later, I walk out and "WAH LA!' - Maynard is HEALED. No more sneezing.

I can give you the same treatment - just send me 112.00 - heheh...

At least he's better now....

Consider yourself lucky that it only cost you 112.00. Two years ago one of my springers had a piece of switch grass break off in her nose. Ended up having to take her to ISU Vet college to have it removed. They had to go in from behind the soft palat and flush it back out the front. After the over night stay, scans, and meds my bill was over $1,200.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
