My dog starts to hack just out of no where sometimes. Could it be that she has asthma? It sounds like she has trouble breathing when she does that and sometimes it last a couple of minutes.

  • It sounds like reverse sneezing, which is normal. One of mine does it more often than the other. When my husband was doing a lot of work on our house, she would do it even more than normal. Sometimes you can get them to stop by rubbing their throat.
