Pugs are so cute and cuddly! There’s nothing like a Pug fur baby when it comes to cuteness! However, there’s something a new pet parent of a Pug may not know. Pugs snore.

Does your Pug snore? Are you worried about your Pug snoring? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We understand it can be concerning when a Pug snores.

We’ve put together some information about Pugs & snoring and how you can help your fur baby. Let’s get started!

Why Do Pugs Snore?

Snoring is a normal part of being a Pug. This is a common issue in Pugs and other dogs that have a flat or “squished” face. There are some dog breeds, including Pugs, that are brachycephalic. And the condition is called “brachycephalic airway syndrome” in medical terms.

Dogs with this condition have more shortened skull bones compared to other dog breeds. This makes their faces look flattened or squished. When the bones of the skull are shortened, the soft tissue of other structures is changed. These dogs usually have shorter airways, narrowed nostrils, and other airway changes that can cause difficulty breathing.

Brachycephaly is often what causes Pugs to snore. This condition can make it more difficult for your Pug to breathe when he’s lying in certain positions. In addition, the airways can become obstructed by sticks, bits of grass, leaves, stones, and more.

These are indications it’s time to call the vet. The vet will give your dog a complete physical to determine what’s causing your Pug to snore. The exam may include blood tests and images to help diagnosis the issue.

Treatment depends on the underlying cause of your Pug’s snoring. In most cases, the vet can provide treatment and guidance on how to help your Pug’s snoring. Your fur baby may still snore, but perhaps not as loudly in the future.

So, if your Pug seems to have a real snoring issue, don’t hesitate to call the vet. Chances are the vet can help your Pug stop snoring and get back to his normal playful self!
