What is happening here (video)

Ruffles does this occasionally but I don't know what's going on. Does anyone know?

Ok, it sounds higher pitched than when my guys do it but I believe it's a reverse sneeze. In the spring Bella gets it so bad she sometimes is on meds for it. You can also cover their mouth and nose with your mouth a blow lightly. Thats what you do if your a crazy dog lady like me it's normal though.

My neighbors dog does this. Yes, its a reverse sneeze. Just lightly cup your hand over her nose and mouth when she does this. It will help.

Yes, this is a reverse sneeze and when it happens and you dont know what a reverse sneeze is, it can be kindof scary (or at least for me, a worry wart).

Thank you everyone, that's what I was hoping it was. I'll try cupping her nose and mouth next time.

Thanks Andra, she's actually due for a grooming.

Dexter will do this type of cough type sneeze when he is really excited and stressed. I try to change the activity and go on to something else and it will usually stop this type of breathing.

Reverse sneeze is my first thought, but also maybe anxiety? I hear something similar in the salon when dogs are waiting to get picked up and are anxious, but usually there is a little whine after the breathy part and the airflow is going out.

Oh, I thought it was like Momo. She starts wheezing and kind of gasping for breath. I asked the vet what that was and he said that her airways might get a little restricted (I guess like asthma) once in a while. He said to just comfort her because she was probably stressed out about it. That seems to work for her.

I'm glad that others think that it's a reverse sneeze. Far less scarier to think about.

Donnie, Momo and Ume's mom and loving it!

Mig does this. I read somewhere (here?) to hold his snout up and get him to lick you. It seems to lessen the episode.
