My abyssian X makes a small choking like noise during the day. He does it after he's eaten and he does it when he hasnt eaten. He does it all day..Sometimes I mistake it for a sneeze. It's hard to explain what it sounds like to be honest...should I be worried about him?

My piggie Sam does this all the time especially if he has eaten to fast I don't think it is anything to worry about if he is his usual self x

does it sound a bit like a cough? and does it happen like every few hours or so, or is it all the time?

All the pigs i have had have done it periodically x

I'm wondering if that's what Snowball does. He's my aby cross. To me it sounds like a click click click. I wondered what it was when I heard it. I've only heard it 2 or 3 times. I was kind of worried.

A couple of my girls often make a noise that's hard to describe ~ i can only say that it's like a cross between a hiccup, a cough and a sneeze all rolled into one! they seem otherwise healthy so i'm not too concerned.
I must remember to ask my vet about it next time i go!
