From time to time, Janie will start "snorting", like you would if you had a stuffed up nose. But it continues for a few seconds. HEr nose is runny, so I am guessing thats what it is. Allergies? Colds (do dogs get colds?).

Is it a "snorting" or more of a reverse sneezing. Reverse sneezing is where they basically are sucking in air, while making this freaky noise. And is often times accompanied with arching of the neck (like if something was stuck). BTW, yes dogs can get upper respiratory infections.

it sounds and looks like snorting...but i guess a reverse sneeze could be a good description.

have you experience something like this?

she doesnt seem panicked by it.

Reverse sneezing is caused by vaccinosis and is considered a rabies miasm.

I do not know how old Janie is or how many vaccines she has had. But I can tell you that the only dogs that I have ever seen suffer from reverse sneezing are dogs that were conventionally vaccinated. My 10yr old Kelpie/Chow used to RS all of the time till she was 6yrs old. That is when we started treating with Dr. Fudens (a classic homeopath). Matieca went through a constitutional detox and had the years of vaccines removed from her system. She hasn't RS since. The same is true for Eros (my 6yr old AmStaff/Rottie mix) and Cuda(my 5yr old Min Pin). Our two new rescues that were vaccinated before we got them RS all the time. Jaeger (24wk old APBT) has never been conventionally vaccinated (and will never be) and has absolutely no problems.

I prefer to protect my animals by administering Nosodes, instead of injecting them with a mixture of viruses, chemicals, and heavy metals. JMHO. But if you want more information, here are some links you can check out.

After reading that I wouldnt say it is reverse sneezing.

It is definetly like when one of us snorts and then spits...sorry if that is too graphic. its just that she doesnt spit.

Then it could be just a regular Upper Respiratory Infection (a doggy cold). Cuda got one when we went up north. She got over it by herself in about 4 days. If it lasts more than a week I would get Janie checked out.

My boxer does this during the summer season due to allergies, but yours almost sounds like it could be a doggy cold or something. Koda has had an upper resp infection before, so I know for a fact it's possible. I'd def take them to the vet to make sure before it gets any worse, because it could also be something like kennel cough.

Kennel cough is more of a dry, hacking cough. Not really a snorting.

i went right up to her when she was doing it and she was wagging her tail going nuts.
