  • what kinda dog do u have? He may have sinus issues, or even breathing issues. How long has he been doing this? Could be allegries, or a cold, a # of things.

  • A vet visit is in order. It could be any number of things, or nothing at all. I'd recommend chest xrays. It could be an infection, asthma, (yes, animals do get asthma) or like one poster mentioned; allergies. Is it really dry where you live? Humidity level may be too low, & that dries out pets the same way it does humans.
