Help Im scared!!

Hi everyone I need to get your input. Yesterday I was walking Mollie and Bailey and we barely walked a 1/2 a block when all of sudden mollie started gasping (like a choking noice. It went on for at least a minute and a half. i was so scared I thought she was choking or having a seisure but there was nothing in her mouth, she was just looking at me helplessly. when she stoped she went back to her wonderful self. Me on the otherhand i was a nervous wreck I did not know should I rush her to the doggie hospital. Do you think I should take her in for a physical? She usually sneezes alot but never had an episode like that. I thought she was having a seizure but someone told me that she would have collapsed. i dont want to ignore a potential problem. what do you think?

Hugs and have a Hava day!
Elizabeth,Mollie and Bailey

Sounds like a 'reverse sneeze'- nothing to worry about! My pups do it every now and again.

Either that or the collar was being pulled too tight....or she got a whiff of something in the air and started that sneezing.....

Elizabeth, watch this video of Sparkey doing a reverse sneeze to see if that's what your pup was doing. Skip to minute 1.

Henry does this all the time. Mainly in extreme weather (like really hot and humid, or very very cold).
I suppose it is difficult to breath in those conditions for such a little guy.

If it is a Reverse Sneeze, you can cover both her nostrils with your thumbs and it will stop immediately.

Evye does it occasionally and if I had not read about it here, it would have scared me to death as well.

That happened to Murphy once on our way to work. It was very disconcerting as I was in heavy traffick and had to keep going. Fortunately Murphy's vet is one complex away from my shop but til I arrived at work the episode subsided and he was acting like his normal self.
