Nose plug?

Postby sarac » Sun Jan 17, 2021 11:42 am

Hi everyone. I have been posting here a lot about Lemon and her respiratory distress. I’m curious if you guys think this is a nose plug. It seems like her nose shuts every time she gasps. I’ll attach a vid and a few pics because the vid is low quality. I think her nose looks shut from the shed, but maybe not. Let me know what you think.[Click image to enlarge]

The timeline is: I noticed the breathing on December 28, she shed January 10, and now it is still going on except much more often than it was December 28th

If you think that this is a plugged nose, then yes both sides. I have a vet appointment tomorrow. Can they help with that?

She might have both a plugged nose and an RI since this started before the shed. Not sure.

Oh lol sorry I attached the wrong picture. But basically if all of those pictures look like her nose is plugged then yes. Because the first picture is her right side and the next few pics are the left side, which was in the video.

Sara you can try using your fingernail to very gently + lightly run it over the shed and it might come off.

Hello,

How is your baby doing, has the nose plug situation looking any better?
I hope he is breathing better & that his nostrils are clearing out. Let us know how he
is doing.

Hi Tracie. I don’t think either side has cleared up. She was put on Ceftazidime and Ponazuril. She is doing pretty well on the meds. Her appetite has been low since before the meds because of our move. It’s been stressful for her. Otherwise she is not lethargic and everything else is fine. The vet soaked her and asked me to do so as well, but I’m a little afraid considering she already has respiratory issues. I may just wet her nose and also let her drink water from her snout. She eats the reptaboost fine as well.
