I have a miniaure pinscher/chihuahua mix. He is 6 pounds and often has breathing problems. If he gets really excited, or sometimes just randomly throughout the day he will do something that seems like he quit breathing. It sounds like he is having an asthma attack. I asked my vet about it and all she had to say was... "its a common problem with toy breeds." Dont worry about it." "Its nothing" Has anyone else had this problem with a small breed dog? Ive grown up around small dogs all my life and not one of them has ever done anything that this before.
Yeah, thats exactly it! He makes that wierd noise and it sounds like he is gasping for air. It only lasts maybe 30 seconds and then its over and he is back to normal.So,this reverse sneezing.... its not harmful to him is it?
