Q: I have a tiny dog, she weighs 3.46 kgs and has over the last 2 months, had a very persistant nasal discharge. The vet took a nasal swab a few weeks ago, and found a bacterial infection and a yeast growth. She has had 3 different anti biotic courses to date.None has proved effective. The vet did tell me he would consider a nasal flush, should the yeast growth not respond to the meds. I am loath to do this, she is a Boston Terrier nearly 10 years. I am desperate. Please advise if you feel this product will help her. And how long would it take to kick in? Thank you so very much. Sally
