Sneezing, Reverse Sneezing and Gagging in Dogs

pet dog petcare pethealthDogs sneeze, just like humans. In fact, your dog’s “reverse sneezing” and gagging are symptoms it’s important to recognize. 

Key takeaways:

·         Bronchial infections, nasal tumours and dental diseases might be the cause.

·         Other causes can be mucus irritation, nasal passage obstruction, inflammation, excess nasal discharge or secretion, pneumonia, chronic vomiting, and gastrointestinal disease. 

·         Mites the nasal openings can also be a cause.

In most cases, if the mucus or foreign matter in the nasal passages is removed, these reflexes will stop. There are no particular drugs that will stop these reflexes. However, if these reflexes are the result of another medical condition, that particular medical condition can be treated. Talk to your vet. Don’t ignore it.
