QuestionMy dog has a runny nose and yellow-green discharge. What is the common treatment for this? (Robert Fleming - Oregon)

Answer

It sounds like your dog has a bacterial infection (although some viral infection can also cause these symptoms). Dogs don't tend to get minor colds in the same way as humans so runny noses normally mean some kind of respiratory or sinus infection which will need treated with antibiotics from your vet.
