Yes, my friends, Nu’s health adventures do not yet seem to be at an end.
Poor pup has now contracted some kind of infection in her eye/nose. She started sneezing a few weeks ago, and then, after a couple of days, she started shedding these honkin’ boogers from her eyes.
And yes, we figure they were, in fact, boogers because of what happened next.
In any case, we went to the vet and got some eye drops, because at this point everything seemed to be limited to her right eye.
After a couple of days of the treatment, however, I noticed that Nu’s nose was crusty (eeeewww).
A second visit resulted in antibiotics and after the full course, she’s still got a crusty nose and opti-gook. No infection, though, which I guess is the good thing.
If the inflammation/whatever-it-is didn’t clear up, the other option that was presented to us was a foreign body. In all likelihood, Nu snorted something up her nose hole and that is what has caused the sneezing, opti-gook, and crustiness.
She’s otherwise happy and healthy, and we hope to continue in that vein, but every once in a while, I have to wipe my dog’s nose.
