I quit smoking on October 21st, 2014 I then started

Patient

Q: I quit smoking on October 21st, 2014. I then started to use vapor products to get myself of nicotine. I had no problems breathing until my family moved to a new house and we got a dog, this was on January 5th, 2015. Within a week I was having trouble breathing and I was also wheezing. This is not all the time just about every other day towards the end of the day. It is worth noting that ever since we moved here when I vape this causes my chest to feel heavy, this never happened until we moved here. Could this be allergies or my lungs healing from not smoking? Or by some chance could using my vaping gear be effecting my ability to breathe?
