I’m Dr. Jenn and I’m a licensed veterinarian with 18 years of experience. I’m here to help with your question about your dog.

I’m so sorry you’re having this problem, but glad you’re looking for the information you need. You may join the conversation at any time by typing in what you want to say then clicking REPLY or SEND. Then we can chat back and forth until you’re satisfied with the information I’ve provided. I’ll do my best to ear your good rating, because that’s the only way I receive any compensation for helping you.

In order to help me help you better, I’ll need a little more information. To start with, please tell me:

  • What is your dog's name?
  • How old and male or female?
  • How often does this happen?
  • Is he/she doing anything right before it happens?

I’ll be standing by and awaiting your reply. Thank you for using our website

I'm sorry for the delay. Sometimes the site is slow to notify me of responses.

One thing it could be is a "reverse sneeze" or pharyngeal gag reflex. Does what Lillybelle does look and sound like any of these?
