i have an 11 week old chihuahua (beautiful btw) and he is weezing and sneezing the vet said just let him do it and he will stop. what could be wrong? i have heard of some chihuahuas (puppies) do this when the trachea is trying to reinflate and that sounds odd...should i stop worrying?

Many many Chi's do this. It is usually "Reverse Sneezing". Is that what your Vet called it? When your pup is having one of these 'fits'... you can cup your hand around the dog's nose and if you feel air being pulled inward...that is reverse sneezing. If this type of wheezing sound is happening after your puppy plays or runs (i.e. a lot of exertion) and is obviously lacking for air then it could be collapsing trachea. Just watch and listen to him/her. A good rule of thumb is that if this was your CHILD would you take them to the doctor? And if that is the case...take your pup to the Vet :)
