my 12 year old springer molly isnt eating

I have a beautiful springer molly who is 12 years old. Seasonally she gets a blocked nose which I clean regularly however when this happens she becomes lethargic and wont eat her food.


She looks very sad and her eyes also weep. When I have been to the vets before they just give her nasal drops but these dont seem to work. Its previously been a matter of time before she gets better. this time though her breathing is deep and she makes a snoring sound. Please help!!

Geeting her to eat NEW
by: Cindy

Our springer Jake is 15, over the last five years he has gone through phases were he would stop eating. I found that if I give him some benedryl and then feed him a diet of boiled chicken and rice mixed with chircken broth he snapes back. I think he needs time to let his stomac heal. Talk to your vet about the correct amount of benedryl for your dogs weight.

I give my dog Piriton, not sure if it is the same as Benadryl, but it worked for my rottie. Poor thing she sounds miserable - but as for previous post, I would take her to the vet anyway, even if she gets it every year, just in case it is something different

Not eating
by: Michele

Also meant to say that if Molly has gone 3 days without eating she probably needs to see the Vet.

Allergies
by: Michele

Have you had her to the Vet recently? I wasn't sure from your post if she'd been recently or if you already knew how to treat her. My older Springer tends to have allergies in the spring. I treat her with benadryl and have been advised by the Vet that it's ok to do so. This seems to help, but doesn't completely stop the problem. You might ask your Vet if it's something you could try.
