Has anyone had experience with their pups having reverse sneezing attacks?
This morning I woke up to Laika honking out weird coughs which I'm pretty positive was reverse sneezing, which is weird because I've only ever seen it in brachycephalic dogs. She had a bordetella shot on wednesday and I would have assumed it was a reaction to the shot except she was acting strange. She kept trying to sit in my lap (she is NOT a lap dog), was shaking uncontrollably, and had no appetite. Because of the strange behavior I brought her to the vet (after scrambling to find a vet, since her vet is back in San Antonio and I'm in Austin), they ran a CBC and it looked fine, also she she had no fever, so they gave her a steroid shot and sent her home. The shot seems to be helping, she's back to her normal self now and its like it never happened. I'm wondering if anyone else has experience with reverse sneezing with their corgis and if it was a one time situation or if it seemed to happen again and again.
I've heard covering their nose and stroking their throat may help it to stop, or even squirting a little water in their mouths. Basically you just want her to swallow.
This may be totally unrelated, but is the chicken jerky made in China? If so, I'd be careful feeding it as it's caused some dogs to get very sick.
Thanks for the tips
No, I'm careful not to feed them the stuff from China
Yes....all of my dogs have done this at one time or the other, but my corgis more so. If you rub their throats, down up, then it seems to calm it down. I'm wondering if it's related to the bordetella? I don't know if it's a killed virus or not, but I'm thinking it's a live one...
