Reverse Sneeze?

Do Havs do it? My Boston did, and I thought only brachycephalic dogs did it, but Indy has done what looks like to me, a reverse sneeze, a few times since I got him.

I do believe any breed dog can get it occasionally.

Yes, they can reverse sneeze. In fact, when Dionna did this for the first time, I had never even heard of reverse sneeze and I was very scared! I came to the forum and tried to describe what I was witnessing and was told it was a 'reverse sneeze' and also linked with some youtube videos.

She does not do it very often but it has happened.

Isabella does it occasionally when excited. I inquired about it at a vet visit and was told its just how most smaller breed dogs, even those without brachycephalic skulls, clear built up mucous from the back of their throats and nothing to worry about.

Henry does it when he's particularly excited about something.

Dexter does this reverse sneezing when very excited and we have to calm him down.

Buster also used to reverse sneeze when he got excited. He did it more frequently as he got older.

I heard the reverse sneeze is genetic. meaning that it's a 'fault'. anyone else hear that?

Short snouts, one of many common causes, is genetic . . .but allergies, nasal mites, mucous in the throat, etc. are environmental.
