My 7 yr old chi has been constantly sneezing for the past few days, with clear secretions. It seems worst as soon as she wakes up, she blows bubbles mostly out of one nostril and she pants slightly. Aside from that she seems normal, eating regularly, playing, etc. She has no food or external allergies that I know of and I feed her Innova.

I was reading up on oral nasal fistulas, which is when a hole in the nasal cavity allows saliva to travel to the nose. Has anyone had any experiences with this? She recently had some dental work in Feb and had a few teeth extracted. Could this be the reason? I am definitely taking her to the vet soon, but I wanted to receive some feedback/advice.

I have no idea but the first thing that sprung to mind was hayfever!!!

Allergies can start at any age, even if there has been tollerance before

It does sound like she has a fistula from the tooth extraction up into the sinus and saliva/mucous is traveling up there and then being sneezed out. I'd definitely recommend a vet visit. The panting sure concerns me.
