Is your four-legged friend snoring the house down? Whether it’s a faint whistle or a sound that mimics a tractor, there’s a reason behind why it’s happening. That’s not to say it’s cause for concern, though. In fact, dogs are like us humans in that their snoring is often a result of a disruption in their airwaves, sinus problems, or weight issues.
The good news? There are ways to get around the more common causes of snoring!
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Round dog beds help to expand their air passages
- Humidifiers help ease congestion or sinus problems
- Dog pillows will elevate their head while they sleep
- Exercising them more regularly will prevent obesity
- Switch up their dog food to a more nutritious offering
So, when will you need a vet to intervene? If you’re concerned that there’s a blockage in their airway. Should your dog, for example, suddenly start snoring out of the blue, or if it sounds like they’re battling to breathe while asleep – it’s worth investigating further.
