Luckily the majority of animals that are sprayed will be fine except for having a potent smell for days to over a week. After being sprayed most pets will act as if they are blinded and will have increased tear production and often a generalized red color to the eyes. Often you will see your pet pawing at its face and nose.
Dr. Tripp Stewart discusses the costs associated with making a visit to the vet and what you need to know when you make your visit.
The larynx, which is the opening through which outside air flows into a dog’s lungs, allows for vocalization and prevents food inhalation (aspiration) — both of which are important functions. Paralysis of the larynx, otherwise known as laryngeal paralysis or “lar par” for short, means that one or both of the vocal folds do not open fully during breathing. The condition can occur in cats but is more common in dogs, and specifically in large-breed dogs. It can be hereditary in Bouviers, Huskies, Bull Terriers, Dalmatians and Rotweillers and is also commonly seen (but not necessarily hereditary) in Labs, Goldens, St. Bernards and Newfoundlands.
