Go to the vet asap, make sure its that. my dog has it. he is on cough medicine, no heavy exercise, keeping him calm, and out of the heat. he seems to be doing better, just has those episodes once in a while, like if I don't let him in quick enough. I also have water pills just in case. good luck with him.

when our dogs start this we just put our finger over their nose and it will stop your dog from doing this.
