We had a scare with Mia this week. She was eating grass and suddenly appeared to be choking. She seemed to work this out but then for the next day whenever she would move she started reverse sneezing which she rarely ever does. I called the vet who said as long as she was breathing okay to give Benadryl in case this was an allergy. Mia has never had allergies but tried the Benadryl as the vet suggested for two days. This did not help. The evening of the second day she was in her crate and had a super violent sneezing fit. This was a regular sneeze...not reverse sneeze. It was so scary I called the emergency after hours vet ready to take her in. However, they suggested I wait until the next day and take her to the regular vet. Mia did calm down but would not eat her dinner which is crazy for her. Mia loves food and has never missed a meal in her entire life!!! Yesterday she was at the vet all day for observation and they also checked her out thoroughly. All blood work normal, no heart worms, nose and throat looked good as far as they could tell. She does have slight tartar build up on one side of mouth but gums looked good. Mia did not sneeze once at the vet. We brought her home and it has now been 40 hours since the big sneeze and she has not sneezed once. I am wondering if the violent sneeze dislodged whatever was bothering her. Very scary experience.
