Thanks for the update and I'm sorry you had a rough night. Hopefully, she'll do much better today and you can all get a good night's rest tonight.

My guess would be that there is something in the nasal cavity---maybe a foxtail? Does she go out for walks? It could have been there for a while & started to irritate her. I would have them sedate her & take a closer look. We have had that issue in the ear and believe me it is a big irritation! Good luck.

Good luck with a speedy recovery. It would worry me more if she stopped eating or drinking.

Another update. B had to go back to the vet this morning. She had about 5-6 episodes where she'd start the snot/mucus foam, and she'd start going crazy. She did it all night as well, like I said. My boyfriend took her to the vet, and it turns out she was having little seizures and she is epileptic. I feel so awful that we didn't know this sooner, and that she had to go through it until today. She was given valium, and a medicine for the seizures. Now, to just go read up everything I can on this...

Oh I am sorry to hear this :-( Yes, research, research and research! You may find very good tips from people going through the same experience, maybe even here. Best wishes!

Oh my, I just read all of the most recent posts and am so sorry to hear that your little fluff has epilepsy and that has been causing her seizures. Hopefully the meds that your Vet prescribed will help her and that things will start to look up for all of you. Please keep us posted as to how she is coming along.

Thanks everyone. I'll keep up with the updates. I can't wait to get out of work and go home so that I can be with her.

I'm sorry to hear that but know that many dogs do fine on anti-seizure meds. You can try searching seizures here in the black bar with the search heading. It's also not a bad idea to shoot video with your phone of an episode. Are they sending you to a neurologist? Have they done a full blood work up? That might help as to possible cause of seizures. Hope you stay with us here.

Those seizures can be really scary. Our little Alvin had a few also. He did great on the meds though. I hope you have the same success!
