My lab is 6 years old, and was laying around outside for an hour, when all of a sudden, she sneezed hard about 4 times. For the past 5 minutes or so, she has been snorting and wheezing. Any idea of the possible cause? Possibly a bee sting, since one was seen on her bed beforehand?

He continues to have this coughing/gagging issue. And I'm worried half to death, I've taken him to the vet several times and everything is coming back normal. The only thing different is that we've changed his food about 2 months ago. And he's pawing at his mouth occasionally. Tonight has been the worst in terms of him coughing.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?Customer: Thank you. He's a 14 year old Westie and the vet is amazed with what good shape he is in except for this recent problem.JA: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?Customer: yes i doJA: Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do.

I have a bichon Frise that is chewing his skin all over his

I have a bichon Frise that is chewing his skin all over his body and making sores, he has progressed to not being able to lie down and be still...he is restless. His appetite has decreased and he is not running outside and being active like his normal self. He is now grunting occasionally when he is lying down. The grunting respirations is waxing and waning. I wrapped the front and back leg with coban to stop the chewing and licking of the places on two legs. I also gave him some Benadryl. He is overweight but it is not like him to ever skip a meal. He is so restless.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the grunt?Customer: He has always occasionally acted like he was snorting and coughing at the same time for a second but then it would stop. He has never sounded like this before.

My dog cannot breathe. I took her to a Banfield clinic, but

My dog cannot breathe. I took her to a Banfield clinic, but I think the vet must have been inexperienced because she tried to tell me nothing was wrong with my dog since their was no sign of blood or green discharge. She is getting worse! It's as if she has snorted something up her nose. She sneezes and snorts constantly and her breathing sounds labored and always sounds like she's snoring. Her eyes are watery and a clear discharge from her nose. Her body feels warm now and she's been uncomfortable for a week now! This is different than reverse sneezing, because she's had that in the past and I can tell the difference. She still has an appetite. Help! What can I do? Neither one of us are getting much sleep.
