Oh guys, the reverse sneezing is not only for allergys it can be due to a congenital heart problem, the reverse sneezing comes after a coughing fit that we may not notice. Also along with the sneezing and coughing there would be blue gums, possible blue tongue, also the pads of the feet may appear blue. The only reason I know this is my dog Boo Boo who I took for an allergy had blue pads I thought he had been licking them so much that they turned black blue. My vet explained that it was not the usual black/blue it came on too quickly and also Boo Boo's gums were Blue, I had not looked at the gums. The vet told me if I had not brought him in he most probably would have died a day or two latter as CHF would have set in and had a quick course. The reverse sneeze as a single sympton is rarely a problem, their are other suble things. Even though I was lucky and got Boo Boo to the Vet, it just gives me good by time, there is no treatment that can change the course of his disease. I do not know what happened to little Oliver, but chances are there were no warnings except the day she took him to the vet.
