Q. My 1 yr old dachshund had been reverse-sneezing over the past few days somewhat consistently. It's not just "episodes", more intermittent & steady
A. Reverse sneezing is very common in small dogs. It is often a normal phenomenon but can become excessive. Some dogs will start reverse sneezing when exposed to certain smells, temperatures, exercise, or stress. Tight fitting collars can also cause reverse sneezing. You can try to determine the cause by keeping track of when these episodes happen. You can try to alleviate the reverse sneeze by rubbing your dog's throat or lightly placing your fingers over his nose.
