Customer Question
My 8 year old...

My 8 year old long haired, miniature dachshund is having a lot of reverse sneezes, but is also sneezing during some of the episodes. She was boarded at my vet over Thanksgiving weekend. As of Thursday evening she stopped jumping too. She had back surgery almost 4 years ago. She is stepping through the sliding glass door rather than hopping through it. I've had her in her crate since Friday morning, I'm wondering if the frequency of the reverse sneezes has made her sore. They seemed to be mostly in the morning and she was snoring when I woke up Tuesday morning, but I've heard her snore on occasion.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dachshund's name?

Zowie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Zowie?

She's eating well, and drinking and going to the bathroom normally. She's had the reverse sneezes on occasion, but not consistently.

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I cannot make a diagnosis over the internet, but I can give you some advice regarding your dog. For the reverse sneezing, I would recommend trying Benadryl (1mg/lb) every 12 hours. This will hopefully help decrease the inflammation in the nose and help decrease or stop the sneezing. If that doesn't help, I would take her to the vet for some antibiotics, she may have gotten a mild upper respiratory infection from boarding that she isn't able to shake. Let me know if you have any follow up questions.If you could take a minute to give me a positive rating so I can get credit for this question, I would really appreciate it. Good luck!
