Snoring

Snoring is a sound made when the rabbit has partially obstructed nasal cavities. As rabbits are obligatory nose breathers, meaning they cannot breathe through their mouth if their nose is blocked, any partial nasal obstruction can be stressful and life-threatening requiring emergency attention by your vet.

However, anything that obstructs the rabbit's nasal passages or causes a narrowing may mean that the rabbit emits a 'snoring' noise when breathing.

Snoring can be caused by the rabbit's breed, a foreign body or bacterial infections, but some rabbits can truly snore!
