Ask Dr Claire

My dog is sneezing more constantly than before. Maybe about twice an hour. No blood or mucus or anything. Still eating fine.

Sneezing is really just a symptom and can be the result of many underlying causes. In this case, we really need to find the cause of the sneezing so that we can treat your dog’s underlying problem (not just the symptom). This will help us reach the best treatment plan too.

Some of the underlying causes of sneezing might be:

  • Infectious disease (bacteria, viruses)
  • Allergies
  • Inhaled Irritants (think cleaning products, scented air fresheners and candles, perfumes, smoke from fire place)
  • Polyp or mass in the nose
  • Foreign object in the nose such as a grass blade
