Can someone please explain what reverse sneezing is?? A few people have suggested to me that Pixie is experiencing a reverse sneeze when she seems to start choking and sounds like she is gasping for air. These episodes usually last only a few seconds (most often when she is sleeping) and she is fine immediately after it is over. I always rub her throat and try to get her to drink some water. I don't want to go to a vet if this is a common occurence in chis and is really nothing to worry about. Please let me know if you have any knowledge on this topic. Thank you.
