Earlier this year, Loxley presented with a runny eye and right-sided creamy nasal discharge. Antibiotics and eye drops improved the signs but after treatment stopped, the nasal discharge reoccurred.
Often nasal discharge can be associated with dental problems so we recommended that Loxley came into our Plum Park clinic for further investigation. Mike Sheldon our dental veterinary surgeon performed an oral examination and x-rayed Loxley’s head and teeth. Radiographs showed fluid within her sinuses, indicating sinusitis. The fluid lines within the maxillary and dorsal frontal sinuses are shown on the radiograph below.
