Hello! So my guinea pig has been experiencing a runny nose and occasionally his sclera turns red. This has been going on for almost a year now. I took him to the vet and the vet said it was not a URI because it had been occurring for so long and that I should try and change his hay, bedding, etc. Well, Ive tried multiple different brands of hay and bedding. I also moved his cage to a different room in case it was causing a draft. I feel I've tried anything that could possibly be causing his allergies. I feel bad because I can hear him having trouble breathing at night because of his runny nose. I'm not sure what else I can do. Anyone have any suggestions of ideas?

Hi, please could you update your location first of all as that will affect he advice we give.

Could you let me know the different types of bedding you have tried and what he is on now.

Are there any air fresheners in the room or nearby?

Did your vet give any medication for his nose like Bisolvon which can help clear any mucous?
