Reverse sneezing

One article on what it is and how to recognize it (video). Tucker has done this.

My pointer mix had this issue. Sometimes pinching the nostrils and/or the throat massage worked, sometimes it didn't. It always made me jump though when he started up!

Tucker has only done it twice. I freaked the first time I saw it, but settled down after I was told what it was.

Faith does this and it always freaks us both out. she can't seem to calm down when it's happening, and it sometimes goes on for an hour.

A quote from Trixie - Am thinking about bacon. Bacon is very good. I am good too, me, Trixie Koontz, dog. People call me "good dog, very good." Bacon is very good. But I am not bacon. Why not? Mysterious.

Whenever a dog has done this, I gently wrap both hands around the muzzle and blow in their nostrils. This has always stopped it.

Hahaha

Never heard of it or seen it before! But now if it happens, I will know what's going on.

It amazes me that this is nothing to worry about. It really looks like an asthma attack. One of my foster dogs had a really prolonged episode of it, the morning I was supposed to deliver her to her new owners! Scared me to death, but when I called the vet they laughed at me, said it was nothing to be concerned about. My beagle had it too, but just short episodes. Looks painful too, besides being painful to watch.

I've seen Bailey do this a few times. Never knew what it was as I always thought he just had a tickle in the back of his throat. Nice to know there's no cause for alarm though!
