Fungal nasal disease Owner Factsheet

Fungal nasal disease is most commonly seen in young, long-nosed dogs such as German Shepherd Dogs and Golden Retrievers. Males seem to be at more risk than females. The fungal spores are widely found in the soil and are sniffed into the nose when the dog is out. Most dogs are able to remove the spores from their respiratory tract but in some dogs this does not happen and the spores are able to develop into fungal plaques.
