We recently adopted our second greyhound. He has had a very drippy, running nose since we brought him home two weeks ago. Should we be concerned?

I have a couple greyts whose noses run in the cold weather. I am not concerned. Where do you live? If it is in a cooler climate, I really wouldn't worry.

 

Oh, and, Welcome to Greytalk, THE BEST PLACE on the internet, and of course, congrats on your greyhound! Love and hugs! Dee and The Five!

Thanks for the welcome! We live in Arizona which is not a very cold climate but it has been cooler than normal.

Thanks for the advice.

Most greyhounds noses will drip during times of stress or excitement. If your hound is new to your home, that's probably the reason. Once your hound is settled and comfortable, the drippy nose should stop.

:nod Carl's was really drippy when he came to live here. 2 years later it gets drippy when he is excited or it's time to eat!

Our greys drip when they're stressed. We adopted Ben almost 5 years ago and he still drip when he's anxious. Bailey did too. And Brooke's nose drips when she's scared.

Ditto that for Sweetpea, it's her only "tell".

 

I bet he'll settle down soon.

 

Welcome!

We've had Max for almost 8 years. He is a pretty calm dog, easy going, not anxious. And his nose has dripped continuously for those 8 years. We call him Sir Snotsalot :blush . There is no ebb or flow in the drip; it is steady, consistent. Our hardwood floors our polka dotted in Max drippies. There is nothing wrong - vet checks regularly, but he just has nothing else wrong with him. He's just a big drip! :P

 

Your boy's faucet may slow down as he settles in - or he may always be a drip, just like Max! :lol

My boys, together again...

Yes, yes, yes! Any time George is stressed, his nose runs like a faucet and he sheds!
