What I'm tempted to do is ask for a direct referral now to the RCVS Hospital (not too far from London) and combine a CT/MRI scan with the aspiration for culture. That way, he would only be having one further general anaesthetic instead of 2+. And the imaging would be able to give a broader picture of what's going on.

That would be my first plan, if they can get him in. Covid has slowed everything down around the world. If they could get everything done at one time and less sedation, it’s so much easier on the dog. Especially when a dog is trying to fight off a infection.
I’ve by passed my regular vet more than once.
I like my vet, and trust him. Just sometimes somethings are so serious, or happen over a weekend. I want a team of vets, with all the latest, and greatest diagnostic equipment at their disposal. When the happens, I make the drive to a highly rated vet school. I pay the ER fee, and higher prices, to have them seen that day.
Not sure if any of that is a option for you.

UPDATE: Blue has what is called a Nasal Dermoid Sinus. It is a rare genetic anomaly. Off to the vet tomorrow to let him know we figured it out. Hopefully surgery will be scheduled soon to remove it and Blue will be good as new. Thanks for all of your help, jk, no one answered, lol. Maybe this will help someone else out if they ever find one on their V. I attached a picture showing the hole for reference.
Hi! I have no Vizla , but a Wolfdog- Mix he has the same on his nose , recently he had that swelling on the back of his nose, the bump went away , but all over sudden this puss came out of this little hole.

My V is 2 years old. He has a small hole above his nose where the fur starts. I believe he was born with the hole. I never thought much of it until he had soft tissue swelling further up his snout with pus coming out of the hole. He was treated with antibiotics and it cleared up. I am not sure what to do next. What is to stop this hole from getting infected again? Thinking of getting a CT scan so we can get a better idea of the anatomy of the hole. If anyone has had any experience with this, I welcome your info. Thanks.
How can i show a pic here?

Our pup has it too! We just rescued her and she has a few interesting developmental abnormalities including a pretty decent underbite. It looks as though her little dimple is closed as of now. She’s 6months old and it hasn’t caused an issue but she does have an upturned nose as well! I’ll update if anything changes!
Thank you all for this thread, it’s helped me feel more comfortable knowing that others have Vs with a snoot dimple too!

hello, how did the surgery go with Blue? My dog Gigi has the same issue but her hole is right on the tip of her nose. She’s on her 3rd round of antibiotics currently and it isn’t getting better.

I have a a similar situation with a hole where the top on the nose meets the fur. It has produced some pus bit what I have tried is to express the hole then a bit of fucidin cream. After a few times this has seemed to helped and is no longer producing any pus. I kinda came up with this on my own after trying to find help with the vizsla society of Ontario who failed to acknowledge me. All about the dogs I guess?🤷‍♂️
