Inward sneezing a lot and a little gasping after drinking

Customer Question

inward sneezing a lot and a little gasping after drinking water. We are on golf courses and they are scalping all the grass. I was concerned it was not that just a reaction to the grass but something more serious. He is approx 13 year old terrier chi mix with addisons and thyroid disease
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the terrier?

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. If this just came out of nowhere, I may be a little more concerned that something else is going on as well. It could still just be the grass, but I would be concerned about a nasal obstruction of some sort as well. It would be a good idea to have your vet take a look at him, especially since we are getting into the weekend. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.

My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
