Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....
Is he eating/drinking/urinating/defecating normally?
Does what he's doing look anything like either of these:
How is he acting otherwise?
Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
If what he does looks like that second video, then odds are that it's a problem called 'Reverse Sneezing', which is pretty common in some small dogs. Although it sounds and looks horribly scary, it doesn't really require any treatment unless the dog is turning blue during the episodes.
There's a great informational page here:

Of course, the best thing to do is to follow up with your regular vet, just to make sure that there's not something medically wrong with your dog, but if this is reverse sneezing, it'll come and go on it's own and leave your dog with no negative effects.
I hope this helps.
