Sneezing, Reverse Sneezing and Gagging in Dogs

 

 

Treatment

 

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. In many cases an antihistamine or a decongestant will effectively reduce the dog's involuntary reflexes.

 

Living and Management

 

Close contact with other animals should be avoided while your dog is being treated. For best results it is important to follow the entire course of treatment prescribed by your veterinarian.
