What Causes Shih Tzu to Invertly Sneeze?

My lil shih tzu does this every so often and i cry i get so upset watching her what causes it to happen and is there anything i can do to calm her when it happens? Thanx in advance :)

No need to get so upset — it’s not nearly as bad as it sounds. Reverse sneezing is usually caused by some irritation in the nasal passage, such as allergies or nasal inflammation, but soft palate abnormalities and other issues could also be the cause. To be certain, have her checked out by your vet.

    Reverse sneezing caused by an elongated soft palate. Place the palm of your hand over her nostrils. Allow her to snort into the palm of your hand a couple of times. She will not smother.

    She could be having allergy reactions. What you can do is just holder her and pat her on the back and talk to her. I had a Beagle that had the same problem and she seemed to calm when I would pet her and talk to her.
