Do bassets get colds? Our dog, Jed, has been sneezing for the last few days. He also sounds as though he's trying to clear his throat. I noticed when we were walking last night, that the more he sniffs, the more he sneezes. If he were human, I'd say it was allergies.
Apart from that - he seems fine. A little listless in the heat, as usual. He's more of a cool weather guy.
