Snoring

by Chris
(NJ)

Hello My rotti is almost 6. When she sleeps she "Snores" like crazy and sounds like she is all clogged up. She always sleeps on her back also. Is it normal for rotti's to snore like that or does she have something wrong with her sinuses.

I just wanted a little insight before I go and sopnd more money at the vet if I don't have to. I usually run her there if she has a runny nose (figure of speech) but it gets expensive if the problem is not serious as we all know.







Hi Chris
Rottweilers can snore pretty loudly, and as long as she seems happy and healthy in every other way it's not something I would worry too much about.

If she has any discharge from her nose, ears etc., or seems sick in any way then it's possible she has an upper respiratory tract infection that is causing some congestion. Also, occasionally snoring can be a sign of more serious issues, but unless she seems sick in any way (lethargic, not eating etc. etc.) then I doubt you need to be concerned about this.

Best of luck with your dog.

Rottweilers snore a lot NEW
by: Diana

My rottie snores quite loudly and so my husband does. Because of the snoring, my husband and I were sleeping in separate rooms cuz I can't sleep when he snores. Our female rottie is very attached to me and she sleeps with me every night. And I don't know why but her snorting which is just as loud as my husband's , doesn't bother me at all. In fact, it helps me to fall asleep when I hear her snore beside me. And I have a very happy marriage but I love her till the moon and backā™„

Snoring Rotties NEW
by: Clay

We have a male and female. Male is7/& female is 6. When they both get going it gets really loud. My wife has gotten up in the middle of the night to sleep on the couch because they sleep in our room with us and when I start snoring with them I guess it gets pretty loud lol. They both are healthy and happy just snores every time they sleep. They do get gassy at time also but we love them very much anyway. I wouldn't trade them for the world as they arout.e our babies since our kids are grown and moved out.

Not only Rotts ...
by: Annie in WA's Rott'n Mom

Don't worry about the snoring if no other signs of illness are present, as has been said. Having had a few of these wonderful beasts and also dogs of many sizes I know that any type can snore. My 9 yr. old mini-Doxi/chihuahua is quite good at it.

Ear plugs reccommended!

all my Rotties (I have had 5) snore. I remember one night my brother was staying and sleeping in the lounge and I woke up to a terrible sound. I got up and went down to the lounge and here is my brother sleeping on his back on the couch and lying next to him was my rottie, also on her back and they were both snoring VERY loudly, I had to close the hall door to keep out the sound, so yes Rotties do snore, but we love them anyway.

Most of mine snore, the heavier ones more so. Putting a humidifier in their sleeping room has helped some (as long as no other symptoms as described in previous poster's comments).
