Poor Pup Couldn't Sneeze Then Dad Found A 5-Inch Stick In His Nose

We all know that a pup’s playfulness and love for adventure can get them into some fixes if they’re not careful, but no one would’ve expected this to happen to Rex the beagle pup!

After excitedly chasing a rabbit through the woods one day at Hillcrest Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan, this fur ball returned to his Daddy, Mark Kovicak, with a bleeding nose. A quick trip to the vet stopped the bleeding and gave him antibiotics to prevent infection. But for some reason, the pup continued to have a runny nose and display discomfort for the next six months. That’s a long time for the poor fur ball!

When Rex, who had stopped being his normal social, happy self for all this time, was finally referred to BluePearl Speciality Medicine for Pets for a CT scan, doctors discovered something shocking. The pup had a five-inch stick lodged up his nose! And it had been that way for SIX MONTHS! Crazy! Thankfully, the stick has been removed now, and Rex is happy and healthy once more.
