Try holding Buddy up to your ear and listening to his breathing. If there is wheezing or crackling you should be able to hear it and then I would recommend a visit to the vets. They would be signs of possible infection or genuine breathing difficulties.

If you want to hear normal breathing then listen to one of your other piggies first - you have to listen carefully past the tummy rumbling and chuckles mind!

I should add - put your ear against his ribs at the side, just behind his leg, and listen to his breathing. You won't have a stethoscope, but you should be able to hear clearly enough.

itrs not any wheezing or crackling, Its just like when we have a stuffy nose like a cold and we breath we can hear it more because its clogged up, But i dont know how to unclog his lol..
