i'm new to this forum. I googled info on dogs nosebleeds & came up with this. After reading some of the stories I am heartbroken. I have an irish wolfhound who has had 2 episodes of bleeding from 1 nostril in the last week. There was a really lot of blood. The vets did bloodwork & found nothing and put her on antibiotics. They said it might be a tooth abcess or a nose tumor. They suggested getting her teeth cleaned & then sending her to a specialist to get the scope done. This is all too familiar with the stories i saw on your forum. I have known for a couple weeks something wasn't right because she has been panting alot and very lethargic. It breaks my heart to think that she will be suffering and I am going to have to make that decision so quickly. She's only about 5-6 years old and such a loving dog. I am just sick over this..I guess I just wanted to share this because I'm so upset and not everyone understands the bond you have with your pet. She's with me 24/7 & my best friend. For those of you who have experienced this kind of cancer- what kind of time frame are we talking about? Do you think it'll be a couple weeks or less?
