    Guinea Pig Sneezing & Coughing

    Hello everyone! :) My guinea pig suddenly starts to sneeze or cough. This usually happens randomly like when I'm petting her or after she eats hay. I know guinea pigs sometimes cough when they eat to fast but I'm still really worried cause this started happening 1 1\2 weeks ago.
