Full Answer

Dogs can also sneeze repeatedly when they are suffering from nasal congestion. The nasal congestion can occur with nasal discharge, watery eyes and coughing, according to WebMD.

Another cause of constant sneezing is a foreign object in the nose. The sneezing may be followed by nosebleeds. If the dog continues sneezing for several days or has blood draining from the nose, owners should consult a veterinarian as an object may need removed or the dog may need treated with medications.

    How long do puppies need mothers milk?

    A:

    Nursing puppies receive complete nutrition from their mothers' milk and should continue to nurse until they are at least four weeks old. At four weeks of age, dogs can begin to eat a high-quality kibble designed for puppies to ensure proper nutrition. It should be offered several times a day, and softened with warm water and a milk replacement, blended to prevent choking or damage to the puppy's teeth. Puppies can be transitioned to dry kibble at about eight weeks old.
