    Default Reverse sneezing?

    So I've MIA here for a while since graduating, been busy planning my wedding, starting a business and working but Elli is turning one tomorrow and this week she started making a nasty snorting sound so I looked it up since it sounds like congestion and it talking about reverse sneezing or something. Anyone know about it?

    Since Bacon's allergies have kicked up he has been making weird noises similar to what you are describing in the morning when he's all stuffed up.

    What is reverse sneezing? I've never heard of it, is it something else I should be watching for? Is it dangerous, what causes it?

    Finn did this last year and on occasion will do it again. I believe what you are describing is Reverse Sneezing and from what I understand, it is not dangerous.

    This is a thread from last year that may be helpful:

    Yes, there is plenty of information on the Internet regarding "Reverse Sneezing". Both my Pug and my Bulldog suffer from it .... my Pug is alot worse than Maximus, my Bulldog. I hear Boston Terrier's are the worst. No, it is not harmful to the dog, but it must be very annoying to them, and frightening to witness to us dog owners.

    Tonka does this too, as well as my families dogs (pugs). I have also heard my friend's dachsund do this. It's pretty common for dogs. Not sure what causes it, if it's allergies or over-excitement maybe? I notice that when Tonka is begging for food and gets all worked up that he often will do it. I heard you just have to get them to swallow and it goes away. It's not dangerous at all from what I have heard. When Tonka had done this on occasion I just try to calm him down and rub his back or sides. Here we go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_sneezing or http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Content.plx?P=A&A=2335. Lots of info. on this out there.

    Jax my second bully did this, he use to do it during the change of seasons (maybe pollen allergies) and when he got very excited. It never caused any damage but was scary the first few times he did it.

    Yeah since doing the research and witnessing it every morning and when my sister comes home, Elli tends to do it when she's very excited. So at least she's not sick on her birthday!
