hazelrunpack, she's actually a leash dog, so where she goes, I go. She does always have her nose on the ground, but I generally watch her so that she doesn't pick anything up. That being said, she was running in my parents backyard on Sunday... I'm not sure if she can get sick a few days later, if she managed to eat something bad there.
It's not that her nose is bleeding, it just looks like she bashed the top really hard making it bleed under the skin type thing. I have no idea what could have caused such a thing out of nowhere.
I'm trying to get through to the vets office now, atleast to see if they think it's necessary to bring her in right away or see if it's okay to wait.
