My lil man has these "spells" Not sure if they can have pollen allergies or not. But he seems like he is choking and makes a weird noise when he breathes at times. my husband can get time to stop if he covers his nose and makes him breathe through his mouth. But i worry he may do it when Im not home and die. Can they have problems with the nares, is it common for this type of dog or may it just be spring allergy? PLease help trying to save a trip to the vet
Sounds like a reverse sneeze to me, very common and not life threatening. To put it simply, a 'flap' of sorts flips in their airway and causing the honking type cough you are hearing. They eventually correct themselves but it will quicker when you do just as your husband does...cover his nostrils for a few moments.
