      Hello, We’ve got a netherland drawf/new zealand white mixed bunny. So a big boy with a dewlap and a shortened nose.

      He’s always been quite prone to snoring but of late he’s gotten much louder and occasionally other sounds while awake. When awake, it’s not a snuffle, but that snoring sound like the air passage is somewhat blocked.

      6 weeks ago his teeth were checked by the vet and are really good. I’m going to put him on the scale in case he’s gained more weight he’s hiding somewhere in his dewlap roll, but he looks quite normal weight. And we’ve checked his nose – not running.

      I know pugs get nasal issues because they’ve been bred with such short snout and was wondering if he could have similar problems? Or if there could be any underlying problems to look out for with our boy?

      Thank you!

      My Dutch snores loudly. Is there a way he might have allergies? How often do you change your air filter at home? Replacing it often might help since it is allergy season in the states right now

      Ah! That could be it. We’re in the southern hemisphere just coming into fall and he’s started the normal molt and gut changes when the season changes. Thanks.

      Smooshed faces can sometimes lead to other things being smooshed (sinuses, tear ducts, etc.).
