About Francisco DiPolo, DVM, CVA
My cat, Sammy, is a perfectly healthy 10-year-old male tabby. For most of the past eight years, I have been concerned that he doesn’t seem to drink enough water. Recently, he moved into Worth Street Veterinary (to cheer everyone’s life, obviously), and he quickly adopted a very cute routine.
“Reverse sneezing”—also known as the pharyngeal gag reflex—is when a dog makes noises that sound as if he can’t get enough air. It can be disconcerting and worrisome, even causing some owners to rush to emergency clinics in the middle of the night.
