I have a male pug with, I assume, allergies. He has been checked by our vet but there has yet to be a solution for Pugsley. He is a little overweight (we are working on that), which probably doesn't help. Although he seems to have difficulty breathing when he gets excited, the most difficulty seems to come when he goes outside, even for just a short time. I take him walking (it's always humid here; I'm in Houston), he has to just stop from time to time to catch his breath.
He will have a similar problem when it's not humid, but it's not as severe. He breathes very hard and very loud even after he's back safely inside the house & air conditioning. It may take him up to 30 minutes to quiet down, even sitting in front of our fan.
I was wondering, Dr., if there is anything
This does not sounds like an allergy. This sounds like a typical pug with a brachycephalic skull. Because they virtually lack a muzzle it is difficult for them to breath. These dogs should not be exercised in warm weather at all. vetcare
