Open-Mouth Breathing

The pet has a difficulty to breathe in oxygen, and they may practice what is known as open-mouth breathing. Some of the most common reasons dogs and cats may practice open-mouth breathing include blockages in the nasal cavity, upper respiratory infections and allergies to things such as dust, pollen or other airborne particles. Illnesses such as distemper, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and fistula may also cause pets to breathe through their mouths.
