A few times now I've witnessed pinkle looking like she's trying to heave something up. A bit like a dog does but without the sound and she doesn't open her mouth. She's just done it again (last time was quite a few months ago). It only lasts for a few seconds and she hadn't just eaten anything. She doesn't look in pain or upset and has gone back to chilling with her back legs out. She has long hair and I'm wondering whether it could be fur balls. Does anyone have any ideas before I book her in at the vet?

Thanks Wiebke. I suspect that's what it is. She's done it a couple of times before but nothing came up. I think I'll book the two of them in for their yearly check up anyway just to be on the safe side

Thanks. I'll let you know what the vet says. Pinks is a strange little pig. She's just taken to launching from the other halfs lap across the sofa and on to me. Quite sweet really but he's not impressed!
