Morning guys
Our golden has had reverse sneezing and regular snotty ( sorry) sneezing now for 6 weeks. Vet a bit bemused and prescribed her a special worm treatment which needed to be ordered in from abroad ( I'm in Ireland). She still has it ( and the house/ car destroyed from the sneezing) and the dogs getting really upset now as she hates it. Anyone had any experience of it? Apparently it's a new thing only really seen in the last 6 months. May be caused by nose mites ( hence anti worm medication) thanks 🤗

- when my dog had hacking cough and 'reverse sneezing' that kept me awake at night (he was well all the time and eating and walking as normal) I googled kennel cough and talking to other dog owners in my neighbourhood it was confirmed that there was a bit of an epidemic of this non-serious but annoying illness. (this was last year)
if he has been innoculated against KCough - it may be nose mites but it sounds like Kcough and it does take a while to clear up.

Thanks for your reply- she hadn't had that vaccine this year but I googled kennel cough and it really doesn't sound like that. I will try and put up a video and see what you think

It won't let me put a video up but it's a really chesty wheeze

Sorry not to be any help - if there is no hacking cough (but just a wheezy chest) it is probably not Kennel cough - the videos of KC affecting a dog are quite accurate.
Sounds more like some kind of allergy/mites - good luck and others may be more help.

It helps even to rule things out!

Poor thing.

How has the sneezing ruined the car?

Sorry for TMI but there's snot EveryWhere! She is sneezing big horrid snotsers! All over the house, our clothes, the car, her own legs etc etc. It's like having a toddler with a bad cold ( on speed)
