Should I be worried if my dog is sneezing? An occasional sneeze or two in an otherwise happy, healthy dog is nothing to worry about, but frequent or repeated sneezing in a dog that seems unhealthy should warrant a visit to the veterinarian. Dogs can sneeze due to irritants or foreign bodies inhaled into their noses.
What does it mean when a dog sneezes at you? Dogs use their sneezes to communicate with humans and other animals. Sneezes are just one method of communicating, just like a dog’s body language or facial expressions.
Why is my dog sneezing like crazy? If you see that your dog is sneezing excessively, pawing at their nose, or rubbing it on the ground (more often or more aggressively than normal), or is sneezing blood, there may be something stuck in their nose. The most likely culprit is a blade of grass, a hair, a particulate of food, or a foxtail burr.
What are dogs saying when they sneeze? Dogs Sneeze as a Form of Communication
As mentioned above, when your dog is playing with you or other dogs, they also communicate using their sneezes, and they can use sneezing as a calming signal or to let you know that they need a break. They also sneeze to say that they are feeling comfortable with what’s going on.
