Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
I am sorry that you have been waiting for a response. I recently just logged onto the site and noted that your question hasn't yet been answered. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years’ experience and would be happy to work with you if you are still needing assistance.
Hopefully by now the signs have improved. I would suspect more that she is experiencing irritation or inflammation of the the pharynx or upper airways as a result of the reverse sneezing or maybe from swallowing the rawhide. If the rawhide was stuck or causing an obstruction, we would expect to see more of a gagging or vomiting. Rawhides, even when large pieces are swallowed, will usually soften up and eventually dissolve. I suspect the airways are more of what is involved and if so, with time the irritation should resolve. If she continues to cough however, I would have her examined by your vet to make sure that nothing else is going on.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.
