Social network for pugs and their people.
Ok, I know all pugs have this problem. reverse sneezing or breath funny. Baby had an x-ray done years ago and show that his wind pipe is quite flat. We were living in Asia then and I was advised not to take the risk for surgery to fix the problem cuz there was no successful case there. I thought maybe we will not play too rough with him from then on. Now we are in Canada for the last 6 years and this problem didn't seem to bother me until recently. He started to breath very shortly and I can't even play with him, before he even gets excited he starts to "cough" like there is something in his throat, I don't even know the right word to describe it. I am just wondering if your pug has the same problem, should I be looking at the flat wind pipe or is he just getting old? And if it is the wind pipe that causes this, have anyone of them out there have had your pug went under the surgery? He is 9 years old and I am worried about his age as well. - concerned and worried pug mom.
