I keep getting mixed information about snorting in cavaliers. I read that they snort a lot as a rule, that it's normal for them to snort a lot and have no health problems whatsoever. Now I just read that it's dangerous if they snort! Grace snorts for several reasons- mostly when she's biting or taking a deep breath while she's asleep.

Im not going to be much help on the information side , but Holly who is a year old sometimes snorts espeically if shes been asleep and I come home and she gets all excited and snorts and sometimes seems like she cant catch her breath cause shes snorting, I didnt realise it could mean anything. :?

Where did you read it is dangerous if they snort? It would help to have more context.

Baily does this frequently, again when we when we arrive home or he gets excited.

Its like as if he cant catch his breath when he does and it sometimes goes on for about 20 seconds or until we distract him???

You could decribe it as if hes clearing his throat!!

Is this normal?

I'd also be curious as to where it was said that it was dangerous. This thread is the only time I've heard of it being dangerous and it turns out this was definitely not a typical cavalier snort http://cavaliertalk.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6268&highlight=snorting
