Hello and thank you for your question.

 

Can you tell me how old your dog is and what breed she is?

 

When did you first notice this?

 

Does she have episodes of standing still and inhaling and exhaling loudly when this happens?

 

What has she thrown up? mucous, liquid, food?

 

Thanks

Can you tell me how old your dog is and what breed she is? SHE IS A 9 MONTH OLD PITBULL MIX

 

When did you first notice this? ABOUT A WEEK AGO, SHE WOULD DO IT ONCE OR TWICE A DAY , LAST NIGHT IT WAS CONSTANT FOR LIKE A HOUR AFTER SHE CAME IN FROM OUTSIDE

 

Does she have episodes of standing still and inhaling and exhaling loudly when this happens? ITS NOT REALLY INHALING, EXHALING SHE STOPS WHATEVER SHE IS DOING AND SOUNDS LIKE SHE IS SNORTING/CLEARING HER NOSE WHICH CAN TAKE HER MULTIPLE TIMES TILL SHE CAN BREATHE CLEARLY

 

What has she thrown up? mucous, liquid, food? LAST NIGHT LOOKED LIKE MUCOUS WITH A WHOLE BUNCH OF GRASS, AND THE COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE WHEN IT HAPPENED IT WAS A YELLOW LIQUIDY MESS
