Default Re: Runny nose/licking nose

I'd switch out the pine and see if things improve.
Straight pine can release toxic chemicals when mixed with urine. It's the aromatic oils, like cedar.
Kiln dried pine is ok, so is aspen.

However, I would suggest switching to fleece and see if you see improvement. Shavings and loose bedding(like care fresh) tends to be dusty and irritates the nose, causing URI-like symptoms.
