    Default Bongo only breaths through his mouth normal?

    Hi all,

    My question is Bongos 19months old now and fixed. He only breaths through his mouth he had the nasal surgery didn't really make much difference in his breathing. He does breath through his nose when he's lying and sleeping and sitting quiet. When he plays or runs around or goes on walks he only breaths through his mouth is this normal?
    It seems that his mouth breathing is the path of least resistance. He does have a soft palette issue but only flares up in the heat. What is everybody's experiences?

    Thanks,
    Frank.D

    You may want to have the palate looked at , flaring during heat is when you would see most reaction, but there could be issues that should be addressed. Also, when were his nares addressed? Normally you would wait to do that type of procedure when they are full grown... after 2 years
