My dog has been reverse sneezing and coughing for the last two days. It seems to be getting bette but is still there. I have been coughing too, and its from seasonal allergies. I was wondering if anyone elses dogs are affected by allergies. Any ideas what to do? Ive been giving him benadryl and it seems to help.

You can get allergy testing if you are very worried.  If Benedryl doesn’t work, you can try a different antihistamine.   Cytopoint works for itching, but I don’t know if it has an effect on sneezing.

Is that available without prescription?

No. It’s a shot that lasts from 4-8 weeks, runs around $100. May be less in other areas.
