Ok, why do dogs do reverse sneezing? Tinkerbell does it a lot and Wendy is like...trying to? LOL she sounds like she is super quietly reverse sneezing but it feels like she is hicupping while she is doing it.... I was wondering if anybody knows why it occurs?

Yea we thought Tinkerbell had kennel cough but the vet looked her over and said it wasn't. That was 2 years ago and she still does her reverse sneezing just as much as before (not often). One person said it can be caused by a trachea irritation and occurs when very small dogs are altered because of the breathing tube they use and it being too big so it gets dry in their throat then they pull it out. Wendy was doing it sort of, so we put her in her crate and she calmed down and stopped. joy

now that you bring this up and I watched a few vids I wonder if thats not what Kiwis issue is. I don't go to the vet for kennel cough unless its bad and Kiwi will "snork" on dry days...I bet thats what shes doing.
