My 9-yr-old cocker spaniel has had snotty yellow discharge for 6 months. She's had never had problems, not even an ear infection. In April she started with the hacking cough, reverse sneezing, sneezing and coughing. Been to the vet and ER 10 times, tried different antibiotics + steroids (Clamamox (4X), Baytril, Ampicillin, Doxycycline, Cefpodaxime, Termaril, Clindamycin), blood work, nasal flushes, xrays. Been to 4 different vets. Initially first vet thought it was kennel cough, which became pnemonia. Now I'm thinking it was something else. Wouldn't a bacterial infection be cleared with antibiotics? So it must be viral - but for this long? There's no bloodly discharge, lethargy or loss of appetite and minimal couging. She's better now but still sneezing and very snotty. We're considering CT scans, allergy testing, another nasal flush. Allergies? Canine flu? Distemper? Cancer? Foreign body? What? Any help would be appreciated!!

Haven't had an xray in a month. Previously (after pneumonia) they showed a possible bronchial irritation. Weren't sure if it was from recent coughing or a chronic condition. I stopped running with her a few months ago.
