Reverse sneezing in pug

Common Questions and Answers about Reverse sneezing in pug


Avatar n tn I've noticed a couple times that my pug would suddenly begin grasping for air in the middle of his sleep. The struggle for air wakes him up and he begins to make snorting sounds for about 10 seconds before he is able to breathe regularly again. Is this a common problem with pugs or should I get him checked for respitory problems? Thanks.
Avatar f tn Gee, I've never heard of this in Maltese or Poodles but I know a breed like a Pug can have elongated soft palates and collapsing tracheas. Does anything ever come out her nose, even a little, like food or water? I ask this because she may have (even a hairline) cleft palate. Has she been to the Vet or due to go in soon for shots maybe? I would mention this to the Vet and have him/her give the puppy a thorough examination. Wish I could be of more help.

Back in July he began having severe bouts of reverse sneezing, sneezing thick mucus (from opaque, to yellow, to greenish), and occasional gagging. He's seen 3 vets, taken amoxicillin and one other antibiotic that was apparently for resistant strains of respiratory issues. None of these helped. He has had two complete blood panels and chest x-rays. Nothing appeared to be amiss.
Avatar m tn Was going to mention possible reverse sneezing too, not uncommon in those breeds. Your dog is a mix but I suggest you do a Google search on each breed to see what health issues they can have, might help you out. Often the National Breed club web sites will address health issues also and give you some insight. If you are treating for Giardia, good thing that was discovered. Often does not show up in every stool. Make sure you wash the bowls daily in hot, soapy water or diluted bleach.
871111 tn?1248996572 Last year, my pug spontaneous begin inverted/reverse sneezing. I was told to not worry about it. Shortly after, maybe a month or so, she developed a runny nose with discharge. It's mostly always clear. She was taken to the vet and given antihistamines, which didn't really do much. Then a litter after the runny nose appeared, she started coughing. It was a dry, non-productive cough, almost like a "cack" sound. She was given doxycycline (100 mg) tablets, for kennel cough.
Avatar n tn It's not, however, related to sneezing, it just sounds like a sneeze that's going inward instead of outward, that's why it's called that. Reverse sneezing is caused by a spasm of the soft palate. You can usually get them to stop it by massaging their throat and getting them to swallow. It happens in cats as well as in dogs. Gasping and coughing could be a sign of a collapsing trachea.
Avatar f tn My 8 year old pug is having gagging/coughing due to mucus in her throat. She tries to cough it up but doesn't and has a hard time breathing when this happens, I have been giving her a product "mucus-Clear"..but I;m not sure it is doing any good. Its at its worse when she sleeps as it must gather and then she cant breath so must get up and try to cough it out. I haven't been able to find anything on line regarding thid specific problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated ??
