• My dog suddenly has started snorting. What could be causing this?

    Hi Emily, thanks for your question. There can be a few different causes for snorting in dogs. These include allergies, an upper respiratory tract infection, inflammation of the nose or throat, or even a foreign body in the nose. If the snorting worsens or starts to impact your dog’s normal activities you should take him into see a veterinarian. Also, if there are other signs like coughing not wanting to eat, or lethargy he should be examined by a vet. Your vet can talk to you more about the causes of the symptoms and any treatment that is needed after they have examined your pet.
