Kona snorted something up her nose yesterday. Around here, the bad culprit is a foxtail. I went into the vet to ask if he thought she should be put under to investigate. (He's the type of vet who doesn't directly tell you what he thinks you should do.) His response was that 95% of the time that he looks for nasal foxtails, he finds one.
He couldn't do the procedure this afternoon, so I can go back in the morning. I'm hesitant because after Kona's initial violent sneezing (yesterday morning) and some off and on snorts later in the day, she hasn't had any symptoms. I hear that that doesn't mean the foxtail is gone. I also hear that it is possible for the dog to sneeze the sticker out.
I know it's better to be safe than sorry, but I also don't take anesthesia lightly. This also is a lengthy procedure, so she'll have to be out for awhile.
Any words of advice (get your butt back to the vet tomorrow?) would be appreciated. Please send us good mojo, even a routine vet visit is stomach turning for both me and Kona.
