Could Animals Suffer From Sleep Apnea?

Mar 23, 2014

Did you know that there is only one animal known to suffer from sleep apnea? Any guesses?

 



It's the English Bulldog!

 

Likely due to its short snout and shallow respiratory tract, the Bulldogs are known to snore and breathe heavily during sleep - common symptoms of sleep apnea. Very little is known about the sleep cycles of animals, but it is quite possible that more than the Bulldog suffer from sleep disorders or apneas. More research is required to know for certain, but it's possible that your favorite animals could have more in common with you than your thought!
