Default Cold maybe?

For the past two days I've noticed that Beau has had a runny nose and a little bit of eye gunk. His nose is usually cold and wet, but it's actually runny now. Yesterday for the first time, I heard him sneeze. Later in the evening he sneezed about 4 more times and then I heard him again a couple times during the night. He isn't acting any differently. He's still running and playing and eating just fine. Could it just be a cold? Anything to be "worried" about?

I've noticed Duke's nose running the last few days too but he always seem to have eye gunk especially after a long sleep. I just assumed the runny nose was due to temp changes?

Every now and then this happens with Dodger & Daisy, it's never stuck around long enough for me to get worried about it. I would say if it lingers for more than a couple of days get him checked out.

Duke had a cold last year. He just had an almost constantly runny nose and sneezed a bunch. Went to the vet and they said it was just a cold. Gotta bundle them up!

Cujo's been going through this too, last week it started with him sneezing every now and then and then on Sunday he started hacking and coughing, that has since stopped but his nose is still a little bit runny and he does have more eye goop. We kept him pretty quiet Sunday & Monday and boy was he raring to go when we got home from work yesterday!

He seemed better last evening. No more sneezing. Both my hubby and I have noticed that he really hasn't been too interested in being outside now that it's cold. Thinking we should invest in a good sweater or jacket. He goes out long enough to do his business and that's it and come right back to the door and then cuddles on the couch...lol.

Mine too have had runny noses and some eye gunk but no sneezing. I've noticed the runny noses and eye gunk the past couple days but nothing bad. I'm not sure to tell u to be worried or if its the change of the weather. By me it's getting cold
