Exclamation Clear discharge from nose!

Hello all! Today as I was washing my boy's feet I noticed his visors had a bit off poop on it, so I decided to brush it off with a wet toothbrush. He decided to duck his head into water and about an hour later he started having clear discharge from his nose. He started licking off the discharge. I might be overworrying a tad bit, but is this super serious? Could he be sick?

I'm pretty sure you know the drill already, hah.

You probably just need to keep an eye on him for a few days. If there's excessive/long term sneezing, excessive nose discharge, changes to behaviour or routine, breathing funny, etc, then be suspicious of a URI and take him to the vet.

Did he take in a lot of water up his nose when he ducked his face in? I'd be a little more concerned if he did. Before one of my rescues found his forever home, he got into the habit of scaring me by dunking his face in the water. I later discovered he had a weird fondness for blowing bubbles in the water, but would lift his head out to inhale - if I hadn't freaked out and scooped his face out by then

No he dunked his head slightly and drank a bit of the water and quickly lifted his head up. I had my hand under his chin incase he wanted to dunk his head while I was washing his visors and he slightly moved away from my hand and dunked his head. So far all the behaviors seem normal he drank, ate, and ran like usualy, but I will be keeping and extra closer eye on him. Thank you so much Hammy ?
