Default Leaky nose

Hi I have a 5 year old Golden Retriever. Approx 1 month ago he started
sneezing, and had a leaky right eye and had a runny nose. About two
weeks ago he started bleeding from the left nostril. I brought him to
the vet and $300 later she had no idea what it was. According to the
X-ray you do see the left nostril tunnel hazy. We did put him on
anti-biotic for 10 days which will end tomorrow. Now if it doesn't stop
the only other solution is to have a $600 procedure which they put a
camera up his nose to make sure he doesn't have something stuck in
there.
If it is a cold how long can it last?
Should the anti-biotic stop the cold completely within the 10 days?
His sneezing seems to have stopped but the nose is still leaking but
hardly any blood.
If he does have something stuck up his nose will he also have a leaky
nose and right eye like a cold?
When we go for walks he seems to cough since he has one side of nose
blocked.
He seems healthy, eats normally, always as playful etc.
What should i do? Wait a little longer or get that $600 procedure done?
TIA

........No abcesses showed up on X-ray? I'm thinking of sinuses. How are
his teeth on that side of his mouth? Could be foreign body, could be
fungal infection, could be tumor.

If it is a cold how long can it last?


.............dogs don't get colds

What should i do? Wait a little longer or get that $600 procedure done?


..........It's not normal to bleed from the nostrils. I'd get it taken care
of.

I'd get the procedure done ASAP. I'd be more concerned with a tumor growing
in the nose than anything else. If it's something cancerous the sooner you
find out what's wrong and start treatment the betters.

I agree with that - especially with a 5 yo Golden.

I'd be concerned about a cancer. I really don't want to frighten you, but
this should be seen again. Maybe make an appointment at the nearest
veterinary teaching hospital where they have access to MRI's and
specialists. Let's all hope it's a fungal or bacterial infection though.
Also, the suggestion about possible dental involvement is important. Below
is a link:

Snipped and copied in part:

Clinical Signs

The early signs of nasal cancer in dogs or cats are unilateral nasal and/or
ocular discharge, epistaxis, stridor, loss of smell, loose teeth and
sometimes pawing at the face.



The stridor and mess from sneezing out phlegm along with the vivid color of
blood during episodes of epistaxis cause great distress for pet owners.



Most animals with nasal cancer exhibit sporadic signs in the early stages,
then show progression over a period of about three months before diagnosis.



Initially, the clinical signs fit the assumption that the pet has one of a
variety of nasal conditions. Most clinicians would suspect or that a foreign
body is lodged in the nasal passages.



Diagnosis

The best radiographs for visualizing the nasal cavity are taken under
general anesthesia with the X-ray film placed into the open mouth for an
intranasal view.



**Too many cases of nasal cancer are initially missed on the first X-ray
series because of poor visualization.**
