Morning,

Has anyone had experience with their GR that sneezes (blows air out of nose, not achoo ;) and sounds like sporatic sucking in air through nose, similar to sucking in air before a big sigh? A little hard to explain. Eating, playing and no fever. Thanks so much. :wavey:

Does she do it a lot or has this just started?

I'd bet on reverse sneeze/cough (it can be a condition or a virus) from the sounds of it.

She just started it on Wednesday. Incidentally, my Papillon is doing much the same thing and I read up on the 'reverse sneeze.' How would I determine if it is a reverse sneeze or a virus? Maybe they both have a virus....hehe. I made an appt. for her tomorrow morning. It seems like I am at the vet too often :wavey:.

Brady will occasionally reverse sneeze - but when I mean occasionally, I mean once - twice a year. It can sound kind of scary.

If both your dogs are doing daily, it might be kennel cough. I would call the vet and see what they recommend.

Brady had kennel cough - a slight case - even though he had the vaccine. The vet did not treat it but in some cases it can get serious.

Update!

We decided to take Amber to the vet to find out what is going on. Basically, a virus similar to a cold. No treatment unless she has a colored nasal discharge, ges off of her feed or gets worse. We got her chipped at the same time, so money well spent.

Amber

Please keep us posted on how Amber is.
The vet didn't think she could have kennel cough did they?

He didn't think it was kennel cough. I have had a couple of dogs catch that and she doesn't have a cough or gag.

Nasal mites............ummmmm, I didn't know about those.......:eek:.
