Sleeping in a bed with a dog isn’t for everyone, but it can be soothing to some to have a big ol’ Labrador snuggled up against you. Though you may well be sleeping with a dog that likes to hog the blankets or fill up most of the available space on the mattress, and, of course, you may have a dog that snores. Loudly.
It’s the last part that may trouble you the most. Humans who snore loudly are often candidates for sleep apnea, a disorder in which you stop breathing briefly while you’re out cold. As you can imagine, it’s a serious medical condition for humans, and so you may well wonder if your dog’s loud snoring might be a sign of a health problem.
Although your dog’s snoring may be perfectly normal, as it turns out, you are right to be concerned.
