Thanks again all. I feed her a wet/dry mix of Iams Healthy Naturals kibble and Purina Pro Plan wet. In the morning they each get a patty slice of Red Barn roll.

Well the congestion is all but gone, but that lump between her eyes is getting larger now. Doc says it's a benign mass growth and I get that, but it's starting to grow around her right eye area.

I wonder if it can be alleviated in any way. It's soft to the touch although she doesn't like me touching it.

my small dog is around 9 yrs old and last year we notice a little bump on her head, we took her to the vet and he told us it was just a wart because of her age so we thought that was probably it but we kept an eye on it just to confirm it haven't grown with the time... anyway my wife was always touching it to feel if it was soft, big, hard, etc. etc. well about 2 weeks ago she didn't contain her and press it as it was a pimple! (she loves Dr. Pimple Popper he he he) and it pops out something black, it was like a blackhead. Now I'm not saying to go and press it but keep a close eye on it maybe if it grow bigger the vet will have to extract it, so start a saving fund

I'm happy to report Lina's bump on her nose is starting to shrink! It's been getting smaller over the last few days. I've been giving her the daily prednisone so I'm not sure if the pills are doing the trick or mother nature. Either way, it's looking promising!

Great news Nubwagon. I'm sure a relief to all too. Thanks for taking the time to update us.

This is now getting out of hand. The congestion has returned and is as persistent as it ever was. I have been giving her the prednisone daily but it does not clear up the congestion anymore. Now its only use is to keep her nose from bleeding so I have to keep giving them to her. She can't sleep in my bedroom anymore because the noise is just too loud, it'll keep me up all night. I hate doing it but I have to kick her out and close the door in order to get a decent night's sleep.

The bump on her nose shrinks and grows. And while I've been told is not contributing to her congestion, it just seems to coincidental to not be playing a part. I have left a message with my vet to call me back, but I'm not sure what else can be done at this point. I have already taken her to the vet 3 times about this problem and they had taken x-rays the last time around. All they see is inflammation so I leave with pills.

Any other suggestions? She's obviously struggling to breathe constantly and it gets me frustrated at times because I don't know what else to do to help.

Thanks.

Really sorry to hear Nubwagon. The only suggestion I would have at this point is what Mac suggested earlier in this thread -- another Dr.'s opinion. If you do some research maybe there is a teaching vet hospital near you. This way you get a think tank instead of one Dr.'s opinion/method. I feel sorry for the poor girl and your pocket book. Hopefully others will have better suggestions.

A rhinoscopy or CT scan will be the next step to see WHY this is happening. It may be something as simple as a seed pod stuck in the sinus. I highly recommend getting her on Yunnan Baiyao for the nose bleeds. Daily dosage of that will reduce nose bleeds, if not stop them all together. Ecko hasn't had one since he's been on it. It's a Chinese herbal supplement. I've taken it myself as well.
Keeping my fingers crossed for a simple solution.

Thanks for the continued advise. I'll talk to my vet first to see what else is suggested. I had taken her to another vet a few months ago and left there with pills too. Normally I wouldn't be concerned as in the past these issues were seasonal. But the persistence concerns me.

Thanks again & I'll keep everyone updated!

Ultrasound may be a little less expensive than a CT scan and might reveal what's going on in the soft tissue. Xray may not reveal enough info.

You really should to get a second opinion promptly. The bump/congestion could be many things ranging from allergy to an infection, such as a cyst or sinusitis, to a tumor. If you are comfortable with your current vet, request more extensive diagnostics.

Thanks again everyone for the continued advice. Vet left a message yesterday stating they have done everything their office is equipped to do. They can refer me to a specialist who can do either a CT scan or scope. I'll need to discuss it with them to get the full scoop. But that's where we're at now.

Stay tuned. Thanks again!
