When my last dog was 15 he did not eat much either. I gave him anything he wanted at that point. He pretty much ate chicken and hamburg for 2 years. But you got to be careful with that with pancreas problems.

I have that dish. You can also find it on Amazon. The slow feeder bowl. Works really well to slow down a fast eater.

Your dog may have allergies. I had a lab that did this because he ALWAYS had allergies. My new dog did this just the other day, too, after a night of snoring.
Check with your vet about giving her some Benadryl. Then, if you hear her snuffling or making noises that sound nasal in origin, give her some Benadryl. It is usually a benign medicine for dogs, although it might make her sleepy.

Maggiekate did you dog sound like the dog in this video I found a video of a dog that makes the same noise http://youtu.be/lN1L1pXdfZM

He has been on claritin but he still makes the noise. I am really starting to think it is acid reflux related since he throws up yellow bile at times. But he makes the noise at random times. Playing, or when excited.

Our silky will do that hacking thing if she's been out "grazing" in the back yard. She likes to eat grass. It doesn't like her.

Thanks WyoNewk. Usually they eat grass when they have an upset stomach. I am trying to see if the hack noise is acid reflux related. I have done research and found dogs that make the hack noise and those same dogs have problems with acid reflux so I m thinking it is related. I know it sounds crazy but I am the type of person that needs to find a reason for everything!! LOL

It definitely sounds like a reverse sneeze. Just like it says, instead of sneezing out, he's doing the opposite. When they do it, it sounds like they are clearing their throat of phloem. It's a harmless thing. The only other thing I can think of is tracheal collapse?? A good way to test that is to push firmly on his throat and see if that triggers it. What is the breed?
