Default Pinched Nostrils (stenotic nares)

Hi Guys,

I have a puppy boxer that is 12 weeks old and has pinched nostrils. We took her to the vet and he said he has seen a lot worse it is nothing to worry about as she has no symptoms with this and hopefully she will grow out of it, if she does not they can do a kind of plastic surgery to widen the nostrils.
Bea is happy and plays just as much as my other little boxer it does not bother her at all. She just snores, it bothers me more than her.

I just wondered if anybody had owned or owns a boxer with this and what was the outcome......

Thanks in advance

i think all boxers snore, i have a snoring symphany at night between my 2 boxers and boyfriend.

my little girl Dually makes this clicking noise when she breaths sometimes so i asked the vet what was wrong and she said her nostrols are small and she will probably grow into them. Does your boxer make a clicking noise when she breaths.

One of my girls had that problem. It bothered her the most on hot humid days especially when active. My vet opened them at the same time as she was spayed and it was so much better for her. No problems after re surgery.

Hi thanks for replying,
She makes funny noises, it depends how she lays really. She snores what ever position but if she lays with her head hung over the edge of the bed or on the other pup then it is worse.

I am hoping that she will just grow out of it the vet wasn't bothered but it just sounds uncomfortable. She sounds like a little piglet

My Chelsea has one nostril that's smaller than the other - it's very noticable in the morning..... we always tell her she's snorkeling!!!!

She 4 years old and it has never caused any problems!

Thats good, its good that the dogs that have this kind of problem dont actually suffer! It definitley bothers me more than her. Bea was down the stables last night as she was allowed out for her first walk...... she was running around like a crazy puppy and it caused her no problems what so ever :-)
