OK So I use to have a shih tzu and he would get these "snort attacks" is what I called them. When he starts snorting in and out breathing really fast like they are having trouble breathing. I think it is a defense mechanism when they get something up their nose or something like that......Is it normal for bullies to have these? I use to be able to stop my shih tzu by putting my finger over his nose for a couple seconds....they kinda act like its painful and they can't breath when they are having one...Anyway Cooper was knocked out last night I think it was 3:30 in the morning and I get woke up to him having one....I couldn't stop it he kept doing it and I cold tell it scared him and his body kinda tensed up. I almost thought tremor??? But since my shih tzu had these I thought maybe snort attack ......This is the first time he has ever done it and he kept doing it. He wold stop and then start again he never lifted his head he looked like he was out of it or still sleeping tongue hanging out???? Any other bully have a snort attack??? Or was this something else????
