When should I consult my veterinarian about my dog’s sneezing?

By Natalie Sacks, RVT.  Reviewed by Dr. Elizabeth Davis, MVB

If your dog’s sneezing (or reverse sneezing) episodes are happening more frequently or if they are lasting for a longer duration, it’s a good idea to consult with your veterinarian. The episodes could be a symptom of an underlying issue such as allergies, an upper airway infection or foreign body, dental disease or a nasal tumor.

If you see any bloody or yellow discharge or other respiratory issues during a sneezing or a reverse sneezing episode, call your veterinarian right away since this can potentially be a serious issue.

It’s also good idea to make a video of your dog sneezing along with any other symptoms you may want to describe. It can be hard to relay verbally exactly how your dog is behaving and distinguishing the difference between a sneeze, cough, gag, or regurgitation can be tricky with dogs.  Videos can be very helpful with diagnosing in this particular condition.
