    Default Reverse sneezing

    Forde just did this reverse sneezing thing.....curious as to if happens to anyone else here.......the first time it happened was like 2 years ago, scared me to death..........i ran to him trying to help...calmed him down and then it went away......after a minute he seemed okay...i immediately ran to the computor to see what i could find about it .....the info I found out said that it wasn't anything serious....it happens to several types of dogs.....and there are ways to stop it instantly....the method i use is to go to forde take my thumb and index finger and lay is softly over his nostril openings and it instantly stops......he has such a look about him when this happens though almost like he's scared anyone else experienced this with their bully?

    Yes, has happened to both of mine. If it's infrequent I understand it is okay. Have to worry when it becomes more frequent. I do what you did to ease the reverse sneezing. I also stroke their throat area gently when it happens.

    ditto. Happened to us when Spring first sprung. It was bad the first week, and now it's pretty rare. I just blow in his face and stroke his throat and Remi stops immediately.

    Yea it is common all 4 of mine have done it at one time or another even my moms poodle mixes have done. I did ask the vet about it one time and he said it was nothing to worry about unless it becomes a constant several times a day thing.

    Happens to Aubie sometimes. I use the same technique as you for stopping it.

    Thank You very much for posting the YouTube video, I've been watching the thread wondering what a backwards sneeze was, I didn't know what I was watching for, but after seeing the video, Rocky's never done that to me yet….. Thank You for the info, i'll be watching for it, and now I know what to do.
