Welcome to justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!So sorry to hear your Taffy is showing these signs!It is highly unusual for a reverse sneeze to result in vomiting but if she is swallowing air while she is having an episode I imagine it can happen since it can end in a terminal retch.A few things to try:- Reverse sneeze can have an allergic component so try benadryl 1 mg/ pound every 8 hours for a few days to see if this resolves the reverse sneeze episodes or at least makes them less severe so that she is not ending in the vomiting. It might initially cause mild sedation- To settle the stomach and minimize stomach acids begin pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg/ pound every 12 hours. This can help as an over the counter antacid to reduce these symptoms and is much more effective than other antacids such as pepto- Reduce meals 25% and supplement with white rice which is bland yet bulking and can reduce gi acid production as wellHopefully this will help reduce these episodes. If you are able to videotape them if they continue for your vet to evaluate that would be ideal but if it continues then please consider further workup to determine the cause of her symptoms and how else we can minimize the vomiting episodesPlease let me know if you have any additional questions today. I am online another 20 minutes but then will be taking a break for a few hours and return later this evening. Good luck to you and Taffy!
