Thank you very much. From what you said, I think this is what you call snuffles. One of my dogs and my male cat especially, has the reverse sneeze and then it is usually followed with a forceful regular sneeze. The cat would be on my lap, and spray a clear liquid all over my t-shirt! I did find on the internet that some vets that used to believe that Bordatella was canine specific are now saying that in some cases it is not. It also said that it is constantly morphing into other strains.
Your answer was extremely helpful.
One more question. Since the cats caught it after the dogs came home and gave it to them, and since the dogs are basically back to normal....do you think that the cats could reinfect the dogs again??
