    Apparently it's common in Chihuahuas - Chico's breeder says it tends to happen when they get over excited. She told me if it happens to just stroke his throat.

    Hasn't happened so far though.

    Thanks Janet it only happens in the morning so far as we're getting ready for a walk. So could well be excitement I keep my eye on him any way.

    Chloe, my Tibetan Spaniel used to have attacks of reverse sneezing especially in summer when there was lots of dust around. It's not unusual in short muzzled dogs like pugs, Tibbies, Pei etc. I used to massage the bridge of her nose which seemed to help.

    My dog is a greyhound/lab cross and he has reverse sneezing as well. I mentioned it to the vet. He also seems to do it when there is high dust/pollen int he air.

    I am not sure why/how squirting with a Jiff lemon would help. Little One occasionally had a few episodes of reverse sneezing when we went to bed at night, but just patting her gently on her back stopped them.

    TBH Ju, I had no idea that the episodes Little One had were reverse sneezing as I had never heard of it. It was only after I joined Dogsey and the subject came up that I realised that that was what it was.

    Little One had crossed The Bridge quite a while before I joined Dogsey though - I only did that when Pereg's epilepsy started.

    Rocky would do it sometimes, but I think it's when dirt got in there.

    I am not sure what lemon would do tbh - if anything I would imagine it to be an irritant :/

    Reverse sneezing is very common in Chihuahua's. As a former breeder and now owned by six of them I've seen a lot of it. If your dog has allergies you'll see it more during allergy season. Also, inhaling the naturally occurring dust from a bowl of dry dog food can set it off at any time. Some dogs are more prone to it than others. The throat muscles seem to get very tense during a attack. I've found that a firm massage will stop it.
