Default Weird noise

When our little girl starts to get really excited she started to to this thing that sounds like she is choking or even trying to throw up. It can be caused from playing or even sometimes when we are putting food down for her. Any ideas what this might be? She will be 11 weeks old tomorrow.

It might be reverse sneezing...It sounds worse than it is and most of them outgrow it without any damage....fairly common....they say that if you massage under their throats, that will help. I'm just guessing but have had pups that do this....it is alarming to listen to until I read that alot of dogs do this without any harm.

agree....if you place your hands in front of the snout and feel air, likely is reverse sneezing. Very unusual the first time you hear it.

This morning when I went to take her outside, it now almost sounded like a wet cough. I am very concerned because it seems to be happening a lot for now days. I think my wife is gonna take her to the vet today. Its been super cold since we got her and today it was -2 when I took her out.

It could be kennel cough. Cooper had that when we first adopted him and it sound pretty bad. It can turn into pneumonia so you might want to get antibiotics soon if I'm right.

Yes, although it could be reverse sneezing, it could also be Kennel Cough which presents when a dog is leaping around and excited. If so, then yes, she needs to see your vet. This is usually the viral sort which unfortunately does have to run it's course - can't be 'cured' but the symptoms can be treated. And more and more these days vets are prescribing a course of antibiotics to help prevent it developing into pneumonia. And obviously it's more serious for the puppy, or old dog. Call the vet at least and take their advice. I'm pretty sure he'll want to see your puppy.

If you do have to take her in, keep her outside in the car (warm) until the vet is ready for you because KC is very contagious and even if the other dogs in the waiting area have been vaccinated, it will be passed on.

Has she had any vaccination done yet?

She seems to be better today. She sleeps in the back room where our furnace is locatied and with it drying the air our even more than it already is we thought maybe that was making it worse. My wife is gonna taker her in tomorrow to get looked at. She has had all of her vaccinations so far and is scheduled to go back on the 14th for her next round and at that time she will be right at 3 months.

Before Arthur, we had a Beagle that had really bad reverse sneezing. It wasn't until the last 5 months of his life that we figured out what it was and how to help him when he had an attack. If it's reverse sneezing, just take the dog and place your finger across her snout so that it covers her nostrils completely. It will force a change in her breathing and she will quickly calm down and stop reverse sneezing. It doesn't seem to hurt them any and it stops an attack really quick.
