I’ve 2 piggies, who are about 5 years old (I’ve had them 3 years but they were rescues - I was told they were “about 2” when I got them, so they could be older).
Recently the male has been sleeping more than he used tobut it’s been very gradual. No change to eating habits or anything else.

I feel ridiculous taking them to a vet because one had more naps than he used to. Is it normal in older piggies? Should I be doing something?
Thanks!

I think they do slow down as they get older. How is his weight and general look? And roughly how much time does he spend sleeping in a day?

His weight doesn’t really vary much at all, never has done.
thanks for your help, I’ll keep an eye on him.
