Default wierd reverse sneeze type noises????

Last night Coral started what sounded like a reverse sneeze, but it lasted for like 5 minutes for so. It was almost like she had somethimg caught in between her nasal passage and throat. It kinda freaked me out. I put the big dogs outside and blew into her noise/mouth (like cpr kinda) once. It stopped for a minute and then started again. She finally layed down and it stopped after awhile. Has anyone ever had their baby do this before? Any guess as to what it was from????

Lola does this sometimes, if she gets excited or something she will do that noise, it is a bit scary, I just rub her back for her and it usually goes away. She also makes little snorting like sounds sometimes too. I know she had a collar on before with her previous owners but we don't use a collar any more and I notice that she is not doing it as often as she was when she first got here. I wouldn't worry about it too much .

Molly started doing the same thing last week....frightened me nearly to death! I found that if i got down and stroked her throat gently and spoke quietly to reassure her, it passed more quickly. If i didnt do that, she seemed to panic and the attack lasted longer. I still dont know what caused it, but it lasted about 5 days and she hasnt done it for 2 days now.

Peanut does it often. It kinda sounds like a honking weezing....At first I thought he had a collapsed trechea, but I took him in for xrays and it was negative. The vet said it was just a reverse snezze and it is common for the yorkies.

Peanut will usually have his "Attacks" sometimes when he drinks water, when he is really really excited or sometimes just out of no where. They will range from 1 sec to a couple mins. When Peanut is having one of his attacks I will drop what I am doing and go to him, I wont pick him up or move him I will just rub his throat up and down and talk to him. That helps ALOT!!

I would take Coral to the vet just to get that checked out. Just to rule out everything else that he could be.

This article might help a little... So that you understand what a reverse sneeze is

A Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie) who occasionally makes odd hacking, wheezing and snorting sounds that I was concerned about. This frequently happened after drinking water or when she was particularly excited. Her vet explained that the condition she had was called Reverse Sneezing or Pharyngeal Gag Reflex, and was not really a health problem at all, but a common occurrence in toy breeds dogs.

I did some research on reverse sneezing and learned that in small breed dogs such as mine, the hacking sound that she frequently makes is caused by the dramatic, rapid inhalation and exhalation of air through the nasal passage. This can happen when a dog has a mild irritation in the back of his throat, or when the little dog first goes out into the cold air. Reverse sneezing is usually a harmless event, but many people think the dog is suffering and having a seizure or gasping for air.

Reverse sneezing can happen when the dog is excited or after eating, drinking, running around or while pulling on his leash. He makes a hacking or snorting sound while extending his neck and gasping inwards. During a regular sneeze, air is pushed out through the nose. During reverse sneezing, air is rapidly inhaled in through the nose. During a reverse sneeze, the dog makes rapid and long inspirations and stands still with his elbows spread apart, his head extended, and his eyes may bulge or open wide.

The loud snorting noise is alarming and may sound like something is caught in his throat. The reverse sneeze episode generally lasts for only a minute or two and then the dog appears totally normal again. Gently rubbing the dog's throat to make him swallow helps the spasm stop. Sometimes taking the dog outside for some fresh air will stop the attack. Another way to stop the spasm is to block the nose holes forcing the dog to breathe through his mouth. Reverse sneezing tends to start at an early age and is a persistent problem.

Some dogs have reverse sneezing episodes so frequently that medications may be needed to reduce the number of attacks.

All the information given should help you. Buddy does this too when
excited. The only thing I would really be concerned about it the time
frame. That sounds like an awfully long time 5 minutes. It it happens
again that long I would have her checked out by your vet to be on
the safe side.

Reverse Sneezing (Pharyngeal Gag Reflex)
: Reverse Sneezing (Pharyngeal Gag Reflex) - VeterinaryPartner.com - a VIN company!

Here's Momo, he does this quite often when playing, drinking water, & if something is irritating his throat. I've also had his x-rays done (no sign of collapsing trachea), it can be quite frightening, but am used to it now. When he used to have longer hair, some of it used to go in his mouth (like 2-3" long!) & that would cause these sounds too. He would make these sounds on & off all night & I finally () checked the inside of his mouth & saw the hair. Once I pulled it out, he was ok & I keep his face hair shorter. Some toys will also make him do this.

Sometimes if it goes on for more than a few seconds, I cover his nose so he can swallow & it stops. Like mentioned above, gently rubbing the throat also helps. Unlike collapsed or collapsing tracheas, where rubbing the throat will cause the honking goose like sounds. The fact that it goes on for 5 mins is a little worrisome, please keep us posted on how it goes at the vet.

Hi there.. I was really curious to see your video because Maxi does the same thing, it lasts for less than a minute but he only seems to do it when he is super excited, like first thing in the morning when he sees me, it happens every morning. Anyway, I wanted to veiw your video to see if its the same noise/wheeze sound but it says that its private and I cant view.

i've had a couple of instances where Sadie will make a noise that to me sounds nothing like a reverse sneeze like i've seen in vids on here, but she'll gag or something and sometimes she does throw up. she's done this twice now, once she puked four times that day and after the last one she stopped making that noise, another time she made the noise several times and finally tried to throw up a bit.

it sounds like she's got something stuck in her throat and is trying to swallow it or gag it up either way. it's strange, but it always passes and i don't worry too much about her as long as it goes away quickly.

any ideas here, is it just a gagging noise before a throw up or something else?

Hi Racel, it is odd that she'll throw up. What color is it? Maybe she ate something she wasn't supposed to?

the first time she tried to eat a daddy long legs. they give off a stinky poison that might have made her a little grossed out and made her sick...

the second time was after her flea meds on Vectra 3D

Oh! Lol Sadie is just being a puppy...eatin stuff she's not supposed to!

I know that some dogs will throw up as a reaction to some flea meds. Maybe that was it. Next time, apply half & then apply the other half a few hrs later if there's no symptoms. If it's a pill form, same thing.
