I have toy poodle girl , 5 months old. It’s been around 3-4 weeks, sometimes she would suddenly not be able to breath. NOT when she is running or getting excited, as most people were asking, but when she was laying on the couch, or just sitting there. She sounds like smoker, back sneezing for a few seconds, then sounds like she finally gets something in her throat out, but nothing really came out, then she would catch up her breath. But when she was back sneezing like that, it’s really scary to me. She does this a few times a day. Does anyone know what this could be? What should be proper treatment?

Thank you in advance.
Thank you guys for trying to help.

Truckergirl, I do appreciate your answer and I think what you mentioned about after taking a nap or rest is exactly what happened to my puppy. I got her when she was 8 weeks old, from a breeder, not a pet store. So I’ve had her for about 3 months. I dont remember clearly whether she had the problem when we just got her, but it’s been regular in most recent 3-4 weeks. Also, I tried to put a little pressure on her throat, she looked fine and did not cough. Her gums do look dark color though, I noticed it recently and asked vet about it last week, but she said it’s fine and a lot of puppies have that dark/black gums.
