Why does my 7 week shih tzu sleep with mouth open.

by Gerry
(White oak pa )

I'm worried, my pup Lexie is having a hard time breathing when she sleeps. Her stomach kinda of heaves when she breathes. I realize shihtzu's have smacked in noses and snort, but this concerns me that she has to sleep with her mouth open. Gerry

A quick trip to the vet will help. She may need to have here nasal passage enlarged or may just need a little time some get better as they age a bit.
