    Default dog sneezing

    for about a week my lab has been sneezing uncontrollably. usually its when he's up and about especially if he goes outside. i wouldnt say its a full blown sneeze though. more like a clearing of his nose with the occasional full on sneeze. my first thought was alergies? or maybe a cold? he hasnt shown any signs of allergies in the past and nothing has really changed diet or routine wise. i did mow the yard friday but the sneezing started before then

    I would think he could have something up his nose. You might want to take him to the vet before it gets into his lungs.

    He might have a mean seed up his nose or kennel cough. Take him to the vet.

    I had the same issue a few months back. Seemed to be some sort of imflamation in the dogs throat and it cleared up with antibiotics. But better safe than sorry. Check with your vet.

    mitty as you may recall he has had kennel cough before and this is not it. he was re-vaccinated a couple months ago as well (although some strains can still be "caught")

    Can dogs pick up grass awns when everything is covered in snow and ice? One of mine has been doing the same as OP's. I was attributing it to dust build up in the house from all the muddy boots coming in and drying out, leaving the dust to float in the air.

    i will say that the wife did some major cleaning last weekend for thanksgiving company. maybe it could be dust stirred up? and we are talking about major cleaning like dusting the fan blades cleaning. and dog hair trapped behind the door cleaning lol
