I have a 1 1/2 old Siberian Husky named Dakota. He sees the vet regularly and is very healthy. However, sometimes, almost every three to four days, he has these small fits where he seems to be gasping for air. It almost seems like his chest cavity, or lungs, are doing this on their own. In other words, it seems like an involuntary reaction to something, on his part. He gasps like 3-5 times and it stops. Is this cause for worry or a vet visit? What could it be?
It sounds like a "backward sneeze" which is common in dogs. It could be brought on by an inhalent allergy. I do recommend a visit to the vet to be on the safe side. Thanks, vetcare
