We have a 2 yr old Pappillon who would once in a blue moon have a reverse breathing fit (looks like dry heaving with lock jaw)

At midnight she had a 5 minute fit where ever 30 seconds she would start and stop. The same around 4 am & * am no vommiting no other ailments was recently diagnosed with seasonal allergies.

Anyone else experience this?

Thanks

O thats good. I was curious was it kennel cough? When Daisy had this I was puzzled at first because it sounds like she was doing the same thing you were. It sounded like reverse sneezing but was really her coughing. Sounds similar.

I am so glad to see this thread. My Twinkie has Kennel cough from the pound, which is now upper respiratory but she's on meds. She did this after a few days when I brought her home. The vet said it was reverse sneezing (which I had never heard of) but it was common and some dogs do it alot and some not at all. It will be interesting to see if it clears up when she's all better.

Yes, my pap Henry does this quite alot and its very common in the small breeds. Its very similar to an allergy of sorts and eventhough it can be very frightening to someone not accustomed to this, it is harmless. The sinuses drain down the back of the throat and since the trachea is so small it can cause the drainage to gum up and cause it to become sticky causing that gasping honking sound. First thing first, do not be alarmed. Paps are very sensitive and if you get upset they will get scared. Remain calm and try to get the dog to drink, this will loosen up the drainage. After some coaching Henry will lick an ice cube and will relax after a few seconds. Research the breed, this is very common and nothing to worry about, he will be fine.
