my Chico has allergies and coughs quite frequently. He also scratches himslelf. He has been on Apoquel from March to end of September. Now I give him fat free Greek yogurt 1 teasp daily in his food. It is supposed to help with yeast and other skin infections. You may want to try the yogurt on your pup. I use a baby teaspoon and put it in his food. He eats half his food ration in morning and the other half at dinnertime. I've been feeding him this way since he was a pup on vets recommendation. He is now 10 years old.

My chi wheezes or "honks" at times, the vet tech said it is tracheal collapse, but not the serious type we need to worry about (I googled it and panicked). Apparently it's just a thing that little dogs do occasionally. He does it occasionally before he eats or other times he is very excited or stressed, and it stops after 1 minute or so.

I will have to say that the main cause of those symptoms is when your pet is stressed. Along with the above symptoms constant pacing, annoying non-stop barking and whining whenever we leave the room are all symptoms of anxiety or stress that can be found in pets.
I have myself a lab: sach and a chihuahua: merely. About two months ago, sach started to show the above signs and symptoms that have been mentioned above. He had mainly separation anxiety along with constant pacing and weird non-stop breathing with a different sound. I was worried sick and had no idea what to do when I got a recommendation from my vet that proper exercise along with diet and medicine if needed can help solve the issue of stress and anxiety. The medicine was only to be given when he was acting up very much which he once did too much and after the medicine, he was calm and back to normal.

It’s called reverse sneezing and it’s perfectly normal. Some Chihuahua tend to have long palates, the top of the inside of their mouth. Somethings, it irritates and causes reverse sneezing. I know it sounds bad, but it’s not.

Yes, it is normal. Ollie reverse-sneezes when he gets excited or upset @Keri87
