Puppy's nose really wet, some sneezing and excesive scratching
My 9-week-old Yorkie has a watery nose along with some sneezing throughout the day.
He has been scratching a lot behind the ears, back legs and tip of the tail. Sometimes we would skip a meal.
What is wrong with my puppy?
It's possible that your pup is sick in some way, nasal discharge and sneezing could indicate a dog illness such as Kennel Cough for example.
The itching, scratching etc. could also mean that he's experiencing dog allergies of some sort. If this is the case it could possibly also account for the sneezing and runny nose.
I'd strongly recommend that you take your pup to your vet for a check up so that you can rule out any illness/disease or underlying health conditions. If it's allergies you can then try to find out what's triggering them. The link to my Dog Allergies page in the paragraph above will help you learn more about this.
It's always better to be safe than sorry with puppies, so a visit to your vet is definitely in order. Best of luck, hope he's doing much better soon.
