    HELP! My pig is hooting!

    Hello! My boy Pip has started making hooting noises! Since last night, he has not moved very far from his little house. I would say Pip is a little bit of an over achiever when it comes to his day to day life so I am very worried for him. He will not eat his favorite hay, nor will he drink...

    Toast's Making A Strange Sound

    For weeks now Toast has been making a crackly/hooting sound. It's not constant, it's on and off some days. Sometimes it's very faint but I can definitely hear it and it seems to happen most when she's eating/cleaning herself. She is otherwise completely herself, eating drinking etc and still...

    Strange Sound While Breathing

    My two girls have been making a strange noise almost everyday for 5 months now, it starts like wheezing, or like hooting, and then it sounds like in the video below. I took them twice to the vet, and she doesn't find anything wrong with them, but i don't think it's normal at all. I can't even...
