The Reverse Sneeze
The reverse sneeze. That’s the best way to describe it. It happens to Sadie sometimes, mainly when she is laying on her back or if she is overly excited. All of a sudden, it sounds like she is gasping for air. Almost wheezing. It scares the crap out of me. She looks so scared, because she can’t breathe normally. I’ve learned to just try to calm her rather than freak out haha. It does help. It helps her relax, and then they seem to end quicker. But I still don’t understand why this happens. Does it happen to your dog? I’ve told the vet we saw in Boston, and she didn’t seem worried about it. She said it’s common. But it just sounds so horrible! Just wondering if anyone else has seen/heard their dog do the same thing?
