Unhappy Reverse Sneeze


My little baby was officially diagnosed with a ¤REVERSE SNEEZE¤
Anyone else dealing with this? I was told it was not going to kill him, it just kills us to watch him have these attacks!
Our vet said we could try Benadryl. The dose is going to be small being he is 3.8#
I'd love to hear from others who are dealing with this too

I had a pug that had reverse sneezes sometimes. All I did was scratch (or lightly rub) her throat til she stops. When I did that, the sneezes only last a few seconds.

VERY common with Chis. All 3 of mine do it. Typically when overly excited or if they eat or drink too fast.
No need for medication.

Both of mine do it. I just rub gently down on their necks and they stop. It is a daily thing with mine.

Odie reverse sneezes when she gets excited. I just stay calm, and it's over in no time. Not a big deal.

Stella does it too. A little bit after drinking too fast, but mainly after she runs around like a crazy dog. Scared the snot out of me when she first started doing it, but it doesn't cause them harm.

I hear that gently rubbing along the throat helps, but I haven't tried that yet.

It's pretty common with Chihuahuas.

Gemma does it daily. She will do it after drinking, after getting too excited, and sometimes she even does it just out of nowhere when she's laying down or going to sleep. Usually if it's a really bad one I pick her up and she will stop. I also gently massage her throat, but sometimes that doesn't seem to help. Picking her up almost always makes her stop.

It's a very common thing in small breeds, especially Chihuahuas. Don't worry!

Penny had it for a month i didnt think much of it until she came down with a respitory infection i gave her benadryl and it really helps with the reverse sneezing. I dnt think you need to medicate unless it becomes very severe.
