• I have a lab puppy that is just over 6 months old. He has been sneezing a lot and has eye mucus in the morning. I am wondering if he has a cold or something, and whether I should bring him in? Thank you for your time

    Hi Matthew,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. These symptoms can be caused by allergies or an upper respiratory infection that is similar to a cold in humans. However, there can be more severe causes for this including canine flu and pneumonia. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
