Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm sorry to hear that your new puppy has been acting oddly tonight - I'll do my best to help. Do you think it's possible that he's reverse sneezing? If you've not seen it before, it can be a little distressing and scary looking. Here's a video: If he's reverse sneezing a bit but acting normally in every other way, it's not likely an emergency. Reverse sneezing indicates a little irritation in the back of the throat. It typically resolves on its own. Sometimes you can get them through an episode by gently massaging their throat or giving them a drink or a small snack to distract them. Humidification can also help decrease the tickle in their throat that's causing the snorts.Please let me know what questions I can handle for you.~Dr. Sara ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------My goal is to provide you with the most complete and accurate “five star” answer. If my answer isn’t what you were expecting, it’s incomplete, or you have more questions PLEASE REPLY to let me know what information you are looking for BEFORE giving me a negative rating! If my answer has been helpful to you, please show me by giving me a favorable rating. Thank you so much :)
