    Default Breathing while sleeping

    My 6 month year old puppy sometimes seems like she has a hard time breathing out of her nose when she's sleeping is that normal?

    Umm Samson doesn't have that issue. @DaisyMayFlores What makes you think she is having a hard time breathing?

    She usually breathes out of her nose when she's sleeping until she realizes a few seconds later that she needs to breathe and then uses her mouth. I dont know if its a dream thing or her breathing.

    Sometimes she seems like she has a wet breathing after water too...is that normal. My vet says she is completely healthy and i even took her elsewhere for a second opinion. I've never a bulldog so I'm new to a lot of this.

    It could be normal - bulldogs have a very unique respiratory system and they make lots of funny sounds when they sleep. However, if you sense something is wrong - and it sounds like you do - you might try to find a vet that is well versed in bulldogs and ask about stenotic nares. Here is a short article on that common condition. So perhaps look at your bully's nose and see if the nostrils look pinched or closed off and go from there. You may also want to reference the vet recommendations section of the site to point you in the direction of a good bulldog vet in your area.

    I hope this helps, keep us updated!
