Hey fellow Chi parents,
I rescued two Chis from death row at the shelter, about a month ago. Our packlet is now 3. Arthur our Cha-weenie welcomed the company. I ended up here because one of the new dogs started coughing. Dry hacking followed by gagging. Googling the symptoms, I found that the consensus is that chis and yorkies suffer from this and I shouldn't be alarmed. Kinda annoying at 3:30am but at least I don't have to rush to the vet.
I'm looking forward the the forum info here.
Bye.

Hello and welcome!
We love pics here so post some when you can.

Chis are famous for something coined "reverse sneezing". It is a snoring, snorting, honking sound.

See the attached videos. Perhaps they will help you know which it may be.

Reverse Sneezing

Kennel Cough

If any of mine were dry hacking or gagging I would get to the vet. Could be kennel cough, a respiratory issue or more depending on their ages. Kennel cough would be suspicious to me since you mention this happening at night and because they recently came from a shelter/stressful situation.
