What is it?

What is this "Reverse Sneezing" that claimed Sally's dog ... I can't imagine what this looks or sounds like.

Thanks!!

Cheers!

This link explains reverse sneezing. If your dog does it, you will know it. I think with all the meds Shelby is on for her eyes right now, her stomach is very upset. Vomitted tonight and then had a case of reverse sneezing. I just about had a heart attack because of Oliver, even though I know what it is.

If you go to youtube and type dog reverse sneezing some people actually post videos of their dogs doing it. It's so scary when we see dogs do this!!

Thanks Michele and Dave -- The links were very helpful. Neither Snicks or Snoops has had such a bout 'yet' -- if they ever do I'm gonna go nuts.

Cheers!

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.

I think it's REALLY important to pay attention to what Robbie posted. the reverse sneezing is just a symptom, and can be anything from completely harmless to part of a constellation of symptoms that add up to trouble. Reverse sneezing, in the absence of other, more serious symptoms, is NOT dangerous.

I'm grateful for the links! Cooper has freaked me up a couple of times in the middle of the night with what I decided had to be reverse sneezes. Poor guy, I gave him the heimlich maneuver because I thought he was gasping for breath and had something stuck in his throat.

I'm so sorry to hear about Oliver. It makes me love my boys more knowing how quickly something can happen that I could lose them.

okay, Now I am freaking out. I went on You tube to see exactly what it looks liike and Tillie does this, sometimes several times a day...her bouts are usually less than a minute and she recovers quickly. We thought maybe it happnes when she gets over excited or maybe she is allergic to the cats or something. Should I take her to the vet? what other signs or sypmtoms should I be on the look out for??
