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.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
