Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he been reverse sneezing?

Does he ever cough or faint with this?

Any nasal discharge? If so, from one or both nostrils? What color?

Any snoring or voice change that you have noticed?

What does he wake up with (you wrote a "ut")?

Has he ever been treated for this?

Any airborne irritants in the house (ie candles, sprays, smoke, air fresheners etc)?
