Default Can a humidifier effect a dog's respiration?

Hey folks,
I'm now using a humidifier in my bedroom to counter the dry heat that
flows through my vents. It helps me a lot, but could it be hurting my dog?
Please let me know.
Thanks.
Eddie

If your dog has congestive heart failure an increase in humidity can make it
harder for any one to breath including dogs.

Assuming your dog is in good health, more harm can come from an overly dry
environment than from a common household humidifier. Furnaces, wood stoves
and the like can dry out skin and cause excessive itching. The mucosal
membranes can become uncomfortably dry and cause a dry cough.

I'd say unless your dog has underlying medical conditions that high humidy
can adversly affect, it shouldn't be a problem to run a humidifier at night.
Just stay away from those additives you can put in wells to clear sinuses
(vicks-like liquids). Our children have humidifiers in their bedrooms that
run when they have colds, and each has a pet with them, usually.
