Dogs and cats Rhinitis - What Do You Need To Know?
Dog and cat’s rhinitis is a disease that irritates and inflame the nasal mucosa in a chronic or acute way. It is a disease that can be caused by both viruses and bacteria, although it often manifests as a result of allergy, or by reactions to dust, smoke and other environmental agents.
Inflammation resulting from rhinitis results in excessive mucus production, generated by the accumulation of histamine, which causes nasal discharge, the most common symptom of rhinitis is an inflammation of the mucosa of the nasal cavity and sinuses of the face.
The triggers that lead dogs and cats to developing rhinitis can be many and you need to be able to identify them so that the treatment is effective.
Dogs and cats are equally affected males or females regardless of whether they are purebred or mongrel dogs, adults or puppies. Usually, when they occur in older dogs, there is a possibility that the rhinitis is related to tumors. Dogs with a long muzzle are more prone to rhinitis that are related to fungi.
Pet rhinitis can be:
Acute: sudden onset and short duration; Chronic: slow onset and much longer duration.
Dogs and cats rhinitis is not an infectious or contagious disease, but unfortunately it is very common.
The causes of canine rhinitis:
1. Viruses or bacteria;
2. Parasites or fungi;
3. Face trauma;
4. Foreign bodies that can not be expelled;
5. Allergies or irritations;
6. Autoimmune diseases;
7. Dental diseases;
8. Polyps or fistulas;
Symptoms of pet rhinitis:
1. Sneezing with loss of mucus from the nose or, in more severe cases, blood;
2. Loss of appetite;
3. Watery eyes;
4. Ulcers or blemishes around the nostrils;
5. Deformed face;
The diagnosis of canine rhinitis will be given after several tests:
1. Complete blood test and urinalysis;
2. Serology for fungi;
3. Investigations on blood clotting;
4. Rhinoscopy and rhinotomies (surgical exploration);
5. Cytology and biopsy;
6. Magnetic resonance imaging and X-ray examination;
7. Culture of the nasal cavities.
For diagnosis, the veterinarian will make an evaluation based on the animal's history, changes in the physical exam, X-rays, head scans and rhinoscopy (endoscopic examination that visualizes inside the nostrils). Sometimes a cytology or biopsy of the nostrils is also necessary.
For treatment, it is often necessary to use anti-inflammatories or antibiotics, cleaning the nostrils with saline, antifungal, humidifying environments and, in the case of tumors inside the nostrils, the possibility of surgical removal should be evaluated. The use of a humidifier can sometimes loosen the nasal mucus, making it easier to drain. Chronic inflammation is rarely curable, but it can be treated on an ongoing basis.
With some of these symptoms appearing on your pet, your veterinarian should be sought after. Early diagnosis of rhinitis and sinusitis in dogs can make a big difference in the positive outcome of treatment.
