Why does my dog have a runny nose, and why is it snorting?

This is a rather common problem in dogs and should not be a cause for concern, unless it takes more than a week or so to subside.

If that is the case, or if your dog's symptoms have become worse, then you will have to take your dog to a veterinary practice.

The vet will be able to undertake a detailed and accurate examination of your dog, and therefore should be able to make an accurate diagnosis. Treatment for the problem can then begin right away.

However, as I stated earlier, these symptoms are usually the sign of something trivial, such as:

  • Allergies: Allergies are very common in dogs and can cause problems such as a runny nose and snorting. Luckily, a vet can easily treat allergies, which are usually caused by a change of season or other environmental factors.
  • Infection: Your dog could have a minor infection which is causing these symptoms. Again, this can be easily treated by a veterinarian.

With the season changes, this is very common. It's also common with hormonal changes, or maybe it simply picked up a bug. Like our colds, it should subside in a few days.
