Thread: New Puppy Snorting?

    Question New Puppy Snorting?

    Hey guys,

    I got a new puppy a Miniature Dachshund who is 9 weeks old, but I've noticed that since he's been home he's making snorting noise but it sounds like its coming from the throat/mucus sort of thing. Relevant information is he had a slightly weepy eye when we picked him up, the lady who bred him said they'd layed down some concrete earlier and it had been raining so it was most likely dust or dirt there.


    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hello!

    Johnny also had this problem as a puppy. I never really got an answer as to why it happened (usually because I couldn't show it to the vet because it only happened at odd times).

    It has gone away since but occasionally flair up. I suspect it is a problem with the larynx. I only use harnesses now and have found the problem only flairs up rarely.

    Upon doing some more research it might be reverse sneezing: Dog Tip: Reverse Sneezing

    Ye, Id maybe look at reverese sneezing. My dog occasionally gets this.

    If its happening all the time constantly though then I would seek vet advice

    It isn't often a dog of this young age wl reverse sneeze. At this tender age the airways are still very supple. I would suggest it is more along the lines of some kind of bacteria or virus. Either way, at such a tender age you really should take him to the Vet. Babies can be affected by illnesses and conditions much more severely than older dogs and I personally would not be raking risks.

    Although Tessa is almost 16 years old she started this reverse sneezing years ago. Vets never really did anything about it. But she's got collapsed trachea and it got alot worse than sneezing. Small dogs are more susceptible to it and being so young if it is infect that or similar they could treat it much surgically.
    Google collapsed trachea and reverse sneezing. There will be plenty of videos on utube of the latter. Hope it's not but please be aware of it.

    Also I have heard of that kind of thing happening with kennel cough has he been vaccinated

    My dogs have always reversed sneeze as they are bracchy breeds and bracchy breeds are more prone to having elongated palates and hypoplastic tracheas and other symptoms of BAO syndrome which is common with dogs who reverse sneeze.
