In this lesson, we will talk about what a reverse sneeze looks and sounds like.
We will talk about why dogs reverse sneeze, what makes a dog prone to reverse sneezing, and what to do when your dog reverse sneezes.
So what do you do if your dog starts making sudden choking noises? Maybe the noise sounds like the low, even buzz of a small motor, like a lawnmower. Your dog may stretch his neck with its head down and elbows out, appearing to be under a good deal of strain and making a truly hideous noise. If you’re not a veterinarian, you very likely panic. Sometimes, though, your dog isn’t choking at all – he or she is reverse sneezing.Cats can reverse sneeze, but reverse sneezing is more common in dogs. Reverse sneezing is more common in small dogs, and in brachycephalic dogs.
Brachycephalic dogs are dogs that have a broad, flat skull shape like a pug, English bulldog, French bulldog, Shih Tzu, Boston terrier, or Pekinese.
