    Default Reverse sneezing

    Frankie just had a really bad bout of reverse sneezing. Of course the first thing I did was remain calm, NOT!!!! I completely panicked as usual. He finally stopped. I thought he was going to pass out. I gave him some benedryl. What else should I have done besides crap my pants?
    My smooshy face boy!

    Default Re: Reverse sneezing

    When Finn gets into the reverse sneezing mode I gently rub his neck; if that doesn't stop it then I cover his mouth and nose with my hand. It usually just lasts a few seconds and I've never had to give him an antihistamine for it or anything like that.

    May I suggest a pair of Depends for you, Rosalie?

    I've heard the same Henny - rub the throat & pinch or cover nose ... It's scary for sure the first time Tyson did it, I thought he couldn't breath & nearly passed out. I'm right there with you. Full panic.

    What is this? Is it that long, repetitive snort thing they do? Bella's done this before.

    I haaaate this reverse sneezing business. Hope that's all of it that Frankie does!

    I never knew about rubbing his throat or covering the nose.

    Winnie does it occasionally and previous dogs of mine have done it. I, also, cup my hand over their mouth and nose. I have no idea why I do that. I guess it seems like they're hyperventilating and it's like putting a paper bag for them to breathe into. But it does seem to work.

    Two of mine get it, especially when they have gotten real excited, or played hard-and sometimes when the weather is very damp. I also rub their throat, and block their nostrils with my fingers. It always works,

    I wasn't sure why I cover the mouth/nose either but i just read it's really the nose we should be covering which "usually forces the dog to breathe through the mouth" stopping the episode. I also read that gently blowing air into the dog's face can help too.
