Respiratory System

The respiratory system begins at the nose and includes the upper airway and lungs. This system enables gas exchange between the blood and the body's external environment. Specifically, the respiratory system takes in oxygen from the air and expels other gases such as carbon dioxide, which is a byproduct of cellular metabolism. 

Because dogs do not sweat through the skin, the respiratory system also plays an important role in regulation of temperature.
