So my 1 1/2 yr old Chihuahua has been dry heaving alot since last night and when I say alot I mean like every couple minutes. There is throw up every now and then but for the most part he's just heaving. I don't know what to do nor do I know what it could be. Its hurting me to watch him. Thoughts? Ideas? Anything will help!!

Does he have something stuck in the back of his mouth, causing a gag reflex? If he's been doing it since last night, I'd get to the vet pronto.

I would still suggest a vet visit. Chi's can have a condition called collapsing trachea where they suck in air and make a honking noise over and over. Reverse sneezing can sound similar, but usually doesn't last long. The retching and dry heaving, if even if its not as frequent, could be a symptom of a serious condition like a collapsing trachea. I'd get him to be seen as soon as you can.

When I rescued my first chi. She did the same thing. I actually brought her to the vet and said it was more of a hack than a cough. But they told me it was kennel cough and put her on meds she stopped hacking in 1 day! Has she been around any other dogs that could have possibly had it? I just remember at night she would be up hacking and it was so sad!
