Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Bloody nose   Thu Dec 30, 2010 2:22 am

I started panicking when I noticed blood on Jasper tonight. I looked closely and didn't see a cut where the blood was at, so I examined his whole body and discovered it was coming from his nose. I didn't see any cuts, so I had no idea as to why his nose would be bleeding. There wasn't enough blood to be too alarmed, but I was still worried. Immediately I jumped online and discovered that apparently it is pretty common for dogs to have nose bleeds like humans do. Am I the only one who didn't know this? I have had dogs my whole life and none of them have ever had a bloody nose before. Anybody else have a dog with a bloody nose? What did you do? The advice I saw online was just to calm him down and put a cold compress on the bridge of his nose. I got it to stop, so now I am just keeping an eye on it.

I didn't know dogs could have nose bleeds....but then again, Ginger's my very first dog...unless you consider horses being like very large dogs...

I had no clue either! When my Bubba got a bloody nose it was alongside all of the other no platelet symptoms. Good to know it can happen, I would have blown a gasket if I had one with a bloody nose.
