My boxer has been snorting. I watch her and it looks as if she's blowing her nose. The other thing I notice she has be doing is tilt her head back to chew some of her food. Any clues to this? :?

Pretty sure all boxers snort.  Oggie does this all the time.  If they are snorting in the same area/situation repeatedly, then you might be able to pinpoint an allergy.  But if you think about it, if you go around inhaling and smelling everything, eventually you're gonna get stuff stuck up in there.  Plus any short muzzle dog is going to snort and breathe loudly.

Boxers have short nasal passages and large nostrils so snoring and snorting just comes with the territory.

I kinda figured that. I was going to take her to the vet. But I noticed that she snorts but maybe once every two days if that.  Thanks for your help.
