Difficulty breathing?

no facial swelling, no difficulty breathing.. but he has done this a few times now over last month.
I had called and talk to someone at vet who said it could be anxiety however I disagree because he will be sleeping and just wake up and start licking and sneezing. it's like he's got something in his nose and he's sneezing and then licking. then he gets up and starts digging in his blanket and rubbing his face. he'll finally settle down but i'm not sure what it could be
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Hmmm

Interesting that it has happened before

How long do the episodes last and how is he now?

Paul
