Recently whenever Pixie is laying down she wakes up and does this weird coughing choking thing for a minute and then goes back to sleep. The vet gave me an anahistamine (I think I spelled that wrong) and said that small dogs often get nasal drips when they are sleeping and not to worry. I am worried she can't breath and is really going to choke hard one night. Does anyone else have this problem?

Are you sure it's not the reverse sneeze/cough? If it is that, medications won't help and it's not dangerous at all.

I've never heard of the nasal drainage thing ... not in dogs with larger muzzles, at least. Pugs and dogs like that, it would make sense.
