What causes a dog to sneeze & cough

I've never seen a dog's nose run, until my wiener dog `( can't correctly spell the real breed of my dog) Any way my dog makes a noise between a sneeze and a cough and its nose runs, bad at times. If you know the reason, for this condition, what can I do to prevent that from happening? I have tried different allergy medicines, don't stop the problem Have ask the vet why, no answer that has helped

Could be something in your house that does it. My dachshund had a bad reaction to my cat's litter box. Took me forever to figure it out, I'm embarrassed to say.

What you are describing sounds like a reverse sneeze. If your vet can't give you an answer get a different vet, or if you are need a veterinary college take it there. Your dog should not have a runny nose.

One of my 3 dogs suffers from seasonal allergies. His eyes get watery and he tries to rub them (giving him crazy hair) every spring.

Try to notice if there's a pattern to your dachshund's behavior. Is it when he's been snuffling around a dusty area? After drinking a lot of water very quickly? After eating a few blades of grass? My dogs cough and/or sneeze when they do these things, and sometimes their noses get a little drippy; but once the irritant has been coughed or sneezed out, they're fine and back to normal.

Just like humans, dogs (and cats) can get upper respiratory infections and colds. If it's giving your dog a lot of trouble, you need to call the vet. Just like humans, sometimes dogs (and cats) need medicine to get better.
