Hi, I am new at this!! I have a 14 week old beagle pup called Daisy. Yesterday she started making a funny noise which we have realised is 'reverse sneezing'. She is doing this still today and every couple of hours. Today after doing it she was chewing something which I this she had brought up, I pulled out and it looked like a bit of the vet bed. I wonder whether she has this stuck in her throat. I have taken the vetbed away for now.

She has had her first jabs and is due her second ones on Thurs.

She has had runny stools this afternoon although they have been fine recently (we took her out in the car so this was probably a bit stressful for her).

Just wondered whether anyone had experienced this before, any suggestions as to whether to take her to see the vet before her next jab?

She seems fine apart from the above although sleeping a bit more than usual, but she is a growing pup??

Am feeding her IAMS as this is what the breeder fed her and vet said that was fine.

Am confused...and worried...!!

Thanks

Of course you are worried, you are the parent of a baby beagle. If I understand your "reverse" sneezing, she may be trying to clear her throat....of something that is caught in there. DO NOT put your fingers down her throat, as my vet chided me for this, you can push the item farther back and cut off her airway. If she is still drinking, eating, and pooing and peeing, she may work it out of her system. I don't know what a vetbed is.....so can't speak to that.

BUT, my main thing to do is when I am worried, I call the vet just as I did when my kids were little and I had to call the pediatrician. Parents (of pets and children) call often, and my vet would rather I called and asked "stupid" questions, than didn't and things got worse. It's time now to build that relationship with your vet. If you are worried, call him/her and see what it could be...and what they think you should do.

Good luck, let us know how she is doing.

I hope Daisy is doing better today. I agree a vet call is in order, better safe than sorry.
From what you explained it sounds like something is irritating her. Reverse sneezing is common but really doesn't happen all day with regularity.

Keep us posted :)

Hi, thanks for comments....took Daisy to the vet and turns out she has kennel cough. He checked her all over and said she should get better without antibiotics. She is back to her old cheeky, slightly stubborn self!

Oh no!! Good thing you took her to the vet!!!

As for reverse sneezing , that is generally random and can sometimes be helped by getting them to shake their heads.

Hope she feels better soon.

Great news! Our Roscoe had that when we first brought him home and at first we thought it was the reverse sneezing as well. Easily treated :)
