Little cough?

For the last few days Roscoe has been doing this weird little cough type nose. It sounds more like a "honk"

Any idea what this may be from? The first time it happened was in the middle of the night and I freaked thinking he was choking on something! He constantly tries to eat strings off stuff, I'm worried maybe it's from that?

My Pippin is doing the exact same thing. It's as if he has a hairball stuck in his throat. His bark also sounds very "hoarse" - we are experiencing a really, really bad allergy season right now. Do you suppose that has something to do with this? I've never experienced anything like this before.

It could be reverse sneezing...forgot the other name of it. If you put your fingers over the nostrils it will stop. I'll admit, the first time it happened to Sophie it scared the wits out of me!

Unconditional love!

I'm thinking it could be reverse sneeze too. Not dangerous I don't think and not uncommon.
If you check You Tube and enter "reverse sneeze" you can see a whole bunch of them! My Chingy has it too. Try cupping your hand over the nose and it should stop if that's what it is.

I was about to post about this because Gordo has been doing some sort of sneeze every day...I've been tracking it just to see if it continues. It almost sounds like when people with allergies sneeze.

Perugina, can you explain a little more about how to stop it?

Just cover the nose with your hand or fingers to block the nostrils, haven't checked out the vids but I'm sure they are similar.

No, it's definitely not the reverse sneeze. His mouth is open and he is breathing out.
