My Gracie has this wierd cough or honk it seriously sounds like a goose I have tried asking the vet but she will never do it there (Of course!) and it seems like she can do it on purpose even for attention but sometimes it happens when she is playing any ideas?

Aww, poor Gracie. I don't know what the cough is, but it doesn't sound fun. What did the vet say when you told them about it?

Oh my Gosh Gracie, I just read a post on the Puppy Place section of Forums. It looks like a puppy just died of the doggy flu. The thread is titled "omg warning" I'm worried about Gracie now. Please read the thread and maybe compare notes with the OP. It seems that the only symptom she was showing was a cough.

I really hope everything is Ok with youhug

It's probably reverse sneezing. Many Chi's do this. They kind of hunch over and freeze in place and inhale and make a terrible honking noise over and over. You can look up youtube videos of reverse sneezing and see many examples and see if that's what it is.

Brody does it occasionally. Especially if he gets super excited. It sounds awful!! I pick him up and gently pinch his nostrils closed with my fingers and tell him shhhhhhhhhhhhhh. You can also rub their throat. It will stop it almost immediatley. They need to interrupt the cycle by swallowing.

It's very common in Chi's.

This "honking" is something that most Chihuahuas do off and on and usually is not a cause for concernblue dog

Abigail

Whatcha doin'?

Yes, our Abigail suffers from reverse sneezing as well. We were concerned that it was a collapsed trachea, but that wasn't the case. She's learned that when it starts happening to come to one of us and we'll stroke her until it stops.

Here I come!

Doozer and Kira both do this when exited. They run to me because they know that I will make it better by blocking their nostrils until they gulp air through their mouth. Then they trot off to play again!cheer
