Condition Overview

An allergic nasal discharge occurs in dogs with canine atopy.

Symptoms

Signs are the abrupt onset of sneezing with a clear nasal discharge. Itching around the eyes may cause the dog to rub his face on the carpet or furniture.

Causes

With repeated exposure to different allergens, the allergic response becomes a year round problem.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis is made by evaluation of symptoms.

Treatment

An episode of allergic rhinitis responds well to antihistamine such as Benadryl.

Prevention

Definitive treatment is directed toward the underlying atopy.

Support

Please contact your veterinarian for exact dosage instructions for antihistamine medication.
