I have a Havanese...

I have a Havanese, 2 years old next month who threw up last night and for the first time had reverse sneezing. I was told, last year that he had a murmur by one vet and told that he did not by another. Is the vomiting and reverse sneeze cause for concern?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Havanese eat anything unusual?

Not that I know off. He had diarrhea two days ago

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Was it just one vomit he had?

How is he now? Can he keep any water down?

Are gum paling or belly discomfort?

Has his breathing settled?

just one vomit. Yes he can keep water down. Breathing is fine. No belly discomfort
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
He is resting now

Hello again,

I am glad to hear it was just the once and in this situation I'd not be overly worried here. The reverse sneezing post vomiting usually is a sign that a bit of vomit has irritated the back of the throat where the palate ends (where the back of throat and back of the nasal passage meat). It won't be related to the heart murmur or any lasting health issues. Its just something to be aware of in the future if he has GI upset/vomiting. The only time we'd be concerned really is if he were having frequent reverse sneezing bouts (then we'd have to think about polyps and airway disease) and that we would treat. But here its a side effect of the vomiting and something to just monitor with him. And if he is a bit unsettled with his stomach still I'd note you can plan to use a light diet option for a few days. Examples of an easily digestible diet include cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder). Ideally, we want to offer this as small frequent meals to keep the stomach settled. But again this is not really a worry here. :)

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
