foxtail in nose

When we lived in italy our dogs used to get things up their nose and in their ears. The stuff in the nose usually work its way out in a couple days.  Don't rub the snout as you may be pushing the "thing" further into the tissue.  Let it work it way out.  If you see signs of infection then you MUST take the do to a vet to get it looked at.

  • hey guys, so im not sure if its a foxtail, but my dog was sniffing around the yard the other day, saw him from pretty far away sniffing around some plants, he came back sneezing pretty bad, obviously something up  his nose or what not. Now I have seen my dogs sneeze when they sniffed something they didnt like or something like dirt or whatever up their nose but this was pretty bad, he wouldnt stop sneezing.

     

    so the following day, the sneezing has reduced but he still sneezes pretty good if i rub his snout.

     

    To make a long story short, he obviously has something stuck inside his nose. I am not in a position to take him to the vet to have it removed right now as its quite expensive

     

    Has anyone had a similar problem with thier dog getting something stuck in the nose? what did you do? any suggestions?

      • so it was wedged in there pretty bad, frequent sneezing, and a bit of blood coming out. Of course all the vets around wanted to charge us $5000 for the latest greatest gadgets and scopes to remove it or what not. I called around and local vet ended up removing it for $300.
