Chow Chow Q&A

We have a 5 year old beautiful Chow Chow named Xena. We feed her very good holistic dog food and she is relatively healthy. She does have a bad breathing problem. It's as if her nose is totally clogged. She gets winded easily when running because she has to breathe through her mouth. She also snores badly and even when resting she breathes heavily. Can anything be done?

She probably has stenotic nares if it's a problem she's had since she was young. I work at a vet clinic and I have a chow puppy with the same problems. She breathes through her mouth a lot and weezes a lot. They told me when I have her spayed they can remove some tissue from her nostrils. It's a fairly common issue among chows and you might want to ask her vet about it! Hope this helped!
