• My dog Macie has had a stuffed up nose for the past few days and has barely eaten a thing. The only way she even eats a little bit is if I clean out her nose just enough for her to smell what she is eating. What can I do to get rid of her cold so she can eat healthily again?

    I recommend that you take Macie into see your veterinarian. The nasal drainage can be from a cold or upper respiratory infection.

    The fact that she is not eating as well is concerning. This can be a sign of a more serious infection or it can be that she has something else that is causing the nasal issues. Your veterinarian can talk to you more about what is causing her issues and the treatment that she needs after they have examined her.
