Wheezing and not a reverse sneeze?
Mowgli does this regularly. He gets his neck in funny positions when he sleeps soundly and makes a wheezing noise, which stops as soon as he changes position.
I'm guessing its a reverse sneeze and not a wheeze. This is common and often sounds similar.
Probably a reverse sneeze. Our Boston is bad about that. He starts and can't stop sometimes. Short noses are worse about it. Sometimes you can massage their nose a bit if they keep doing it and it will relax the muscles and help them stop.
Thanks everyone! Bebop did a less scary version the next night. My BF thought he was doing it again, but I thought he was snoring! Whichever one it was, it didn't last long and wasn't as loud or scary. I was able to bring it up to the vet when I took Bebop in (for an unrelated issue) and he did mention that it could be allergies. Pollen count, dusty, etc....I blushed a little, because Bebop's bed has been washed, but I haven't thoroughly cleaned out bedroom like I usually do! Perhaps my little fur-ball was giving me a hint ;)
If it was reverse sneezing, my dogs do that from time to time, too. Seems like seasonal allergies. My vet said to give them one Benadryl pill and that fixes them right up.
