Default Hognose Problem. Please help!

Ok, well first of all, I have a small western hognose in a long exo terra, about 90-91 degrees on the hot side and 83-86 on the colder side. I've noticed that he will sort of gasp, like open his mouth to breath and wheeze in a way. I've read where this is sort of a respiratory problem, but not sure how to fix it. Any recommendations?

Here you go, how to check for RI and treating if necessary.
If the problem persists and/or gets worse you should take your hoggie to the vets though.
