Yes the videos work. Poor little girl (though she is a cutie!) - have you looked up reverse sneezing on youtube/this site to compare?

Sure sounds like it to me - reverse sneezing actually has nothing to do with sneezing, but is a spasm caused by an irritation of the soft palate.

'The soft palate is a soft, fleshy tissue extension off the hard palate, or roof of the mouth. Small dogs in particular can exhibit this behavior and certain breeds may be predisposed to it.

Some animals can have this condition for their entire lives, or it may develop as the dog ages. During the spasm, the dog will usually turn her elbows outward and extend her neck while gasping inwards with a distinctive snorting sound. Gently massaging the throat area or pinching the dog's nostrils shut so she must breath through her mouth can help shorten the episode. Sometimes taking the dog outside in the fresh air stops the spasm. Once the attack ceases, all goes back to normal.

It is thought that the pharyngeal spasm can be caused by a number of irritants, including dust and pollen, or household chemicals. Moreover, some dogs can launch an episode after eating, drinking or running around, or while pulling on the leash.

Reverse sneezing appears a lot worse than it is, generally posing no health threats whatsoever. Typically, an episode of reverse sneezing will end soon on its own. Nevertheless, understanding and recognizing the syndrome can go a long way toward helping dog owners and their dogs cope with it. '

Sophie, my smallest, does this. I had a previous owned a very small chi who had it worse. I was told about the "reverse sneeze" too. I no longer worry when it happens. By softly telling Sophie to calm down, seems to help her get past it.

Hi & welcome to the forum. She is so cute. I notice she has a very thick neck & wonder if excess fat could be causing pressure on her trachea. All chis reverse sneeze at one point or other, but this does seem severe. Has her trachea been injured at one time by using a leash with a collar, looking out a window, etc.? I'm glad you are getting it checked out. Please keep us updated on her progress.

Default newbie from the uk! Honking noise from my chi

Just to clarify for readers- the "honking noise" aka reverse sneezing is completely normal if it happens occasionally and quickly goes away. It's when it becomes a continuous issue that it could be a collapsed trachea. The reverse sneezing is a symptom of a collapsed trachea but it can also be as simple as your chi getting over excited. So don't panic if there is a reverse sneeze. It's normal, as long as it isn't happening too frequently and stops.

I just wanted to post that so people reading this thread don't think, "oh no my chi reverse sneezed today when I came home from work, he must have a collapsed trachea!" I have a tendency to be a worried chi mommy, and I know that I would think that if I didn't know any better.
