Sneezing and stops to gasp and breathe
First, if your
pet is showing any distress in breathing, I would recommend you
have a complete physical examination by your veterinarian.
Sneezing is the body’s natural defense to clear offending agents from the nasal passages. Sneezing occurs with upper respiratory infections, foreign bodies, allergies, etc. In small dogs, we will also see dogs do a “reverse” sneeze. This can be caused by post nasal drip.
