Reverse Sneezing.....
not harmful to dogs, but extremely stressful on owners.

(Pharyngeal Gag Reflex)

Reverse sneezing tends to happen randomly, without warning, often in the middle of the night, and sounds literally like your dog is about to die of an asthma attack.

It can happen after the dog wakes, or when they’re just standing there being normal. Most dogs are completely normal before and after episodes. In addition, most dogs will have repeat episodes of reverse sneezing throughout their lives.

It could be from irritation in the nose/pharynx/sinuses, or allergies, or over-excitement, but the truth is.... WE DO NOT KNOW WHY IT HAPPENS!

There is no cure, there is no reliable prevention, treatment can often be achieved by pinching the dog’s nose or blowing in their face. Or leaving them alone, because they’ll stop on their own
