If the "backward sneezing" has increased, she probably has a little upper respiratory infection or allergies.  It's going through our house, too.  Our doc says don't worry, and give a Benadryl if there is a lot of nasal discharge.  Kinda like the kids having colds, it goes through the whole family!  :0)

Hektor sometimes has a bit foam at the side of his mouth but we always put it down to him getting interested in smells, it only happens outside in the park. He has spates of reverse sneezing but because I am fighting his weight again I have not noticed this for a bit. Seems to get worse depending on how much weight he has round his neck area. It was suggested to me that this does not help and I tend to agree. I think though that if this is giving concern you should have her checked. It is always worth while just to make sure.

Hi Mary

   Our Peke-a-poo use to do this more then my pugs do, but I mostly did the same thing that Jackie said to do.  Linus does it most times after he is done eating, and I just rub him under the neck and tell him he should not have eaten so fast.  With the foaming though, you might want to see your vet as again I agree with Jackie.  Good luck, and yes please keep us posted

Hi Mary, I have had the reverse sneeze problem too.  I read to just rub their throat and talk to them calmly.  Sometimes I'll offer Guido water and he will usually drink.  You may want to get it checked out though b/c it could be her elongated soft palate too.  That's what was suggested to us but we have not pursued it.  One vet told us to do the surgery and the other said not to.  I guess it depends on the severity.  Do you have a collar leash or a harness?  Harnesses help with this as well.  Good luck and I hope she is ok...please keep us posted.
