For what reasons does my dog snore?
Dogs can snore for a variety of reasons. Some breeds are more prone to it because of their anatomy. Schnauzer dogs snore more often because often these races have airway problems pre-programmed.
Flat-headed dogs snore more often
Breeds with a short muzzle, such as Pekingese, Pugs or Boxers, often suffer from respiratory problems and are therefore known for their noisy sleep. Their anatomy makes it difficult to breathe and dogs often have to breathe through the mouth.
Often, therefore, it comes to breathing sounds when the dogs are not sleeping.
When other races snore
The dog explores its environment through odors. But when the nose becomes blocked by environmental particles, the unpleasant snoring sound can keep the whole family awake.
In this case you should consult a veterinarian to solve the problem.
Also diseases can cause the nocturnal snoring concert. If the respiratory tract is clogged, the breathing becomes more difficult and as with us humans, it can come to the snoring.
However, it could also be a warning sign of serious disease: a respiratory infection, strep throat or even a tumor could be responsible for the snoring.
