    Reoccuring URIs and hooting

    Hello, I have a girl who's been sneezing lately a lot and making this hooting sound when she tries to sleep sometimes. I took her to the vet recently because I thought it was a URI. The vet said her lungs sounded clear; however, I gave her antibiotics for two weeks. It's been a little less...

    Wheezing / hooting noise followed by hiccough

    Hello all :) One of my female piggies, Ginny, has been hooting / wheezing loudly - especially at night but also in the daytime - but not showing any other signs of illness at all. She always hiccoughs at the end and the hooting then stops. This has been happening, on and off, for about 3...

    Intermittent Hooting

    I have a 3-month old guinea pig. A week ago, first thing in the morning I noticed she was making a hooting sound and moving her head back and forth while in her plastic igloo. It was almost like she was still asleep. She came out of her igloo and started eating when I fed her. She gave a sneeze...

    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...

    My Pig Is Making Strange Noises?

    Hello everybody, let me first say; I'm a new owner. I've never had Guinea pigs before in my life until this past December. As a Christmas present, my aunt took me to her usual pet store for her dogs and we bought a very young pig. My neighbor had a single pig she could no longer take care of and...

    Hay Allergy, Wetting Hay And Long Term Fibreplex

    So I've had Toast back and forth at the vets as she's been breathing funny for months now; Toast's Making A Strange Sound A URI seems to have been ruled out as she's not had a runny nose or eyes and it's not gotten worse in the months it's been going on. 2 exotic specialist vets have listened...

    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...

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...
