Hello!

My boy Pip has started making hooting noises!

Since last night, he has not moved very far from his little house. I would say Pip is a little bit of an over achiever when it comes to his day to day life so I am very worried for him. He will not eat his favorite hay, nor will he drink. I have noticed a decline in his attitude within the last 2-3 days but nothing that I would’ve been scared of if he didn’t start making these noises.

He makes these noises about every 5 minutes.

Nothing in his diet has changed, he eats his pellets, hay and loves his spinach, cucumbers, bell peppers, and carrots that he gets daily. He gets plenty of exercise too.

If this is of any importance, Pip is an only pig, as his life before me was not very happy with other cage mates. He used to have pig play dates, but has not had interaction with other pigs in 3 months now because we have moved. The two boys that he used to play with are perfectly fine and young.

Please help me, I am so very worried for my boy ): I love him dearly and would be devastated if anything happened to him.

I’m afraid this is a veterinary emergency, please get him to a vet straight away. Lethargy, not eating and drinking and hooting are all signs that he needs urgent veterinary attention. Please let us know how you get on.
