Reverse sneezing

Does anyone have experience with this? My chihuahua reverse sneezes but lately it has been happening a lot more often. Is it affected maybe by dryness in the air? I feel so bad for her when it happens but it doesn't seem to bother her too much. Lately, she has been following it up with a gag, like she has something caught in her throat. Is it normal for them to gag afterwards? It looks exhausting (I guess I think of when I've had dry heaves and how it made my stomach muscles feel, lol). She had a checkup in the past month but we didn't address the reverse sneezing in particular. The doctor said she was in great health. I just can't help but worry when I see her honking like that

It sounds like a collapsing trachea.. It's very common in small, toy breed dogs. My dachshund Kahlua does it the most, and sometimes my other dachshund, Penny and papillon, Jasmine also do this. My vet said it's normal for the small dogs when I told her my concern about it. Brad's sister has a yorkie who does it alot, he especially makes the "honking" type of sound.

Sometimes it happens when they get too excited, but Kahlua will do it out of the blue sometimes. We rub his throat to calm him down.

It happens to Odie too... I even have a video of him.

YouTube - Odie's collapsible trachea?

I asked online and most people agree that it's reverse sneeze. I also rub Odie's throat when it happens and give him lots of hugs, I can't help but feel sorry for him.

That video of Odie looks just like Gidget's reverse sneezing (except she's a bit more vocal with honking noises). I know it's common in small dogs, I was just alarmed that it's been happening more often. Poor little girl I think it bothers me more than it bothers her though, lol. She usually just carries on with what she was doing.

My mom used to have a toy fox terrier that did it everyday. The Boston terriers that I used to have did it quite often too.

I'm just putting this out on a limb, most likely it's the reverse sneezing thing... but have you had her treated for kennel cough? If she's been around other dogs or doggy day care it's a likely thing to catch... also, heart wormy dogs make coughing sounds.... I really doubt it's either of these, but I always try to keep my mind open.

I've heard it's quite common in beagles, mine used to do it all the time, but it seems like no one really knows how to explain it.
