hi all. Have just brought home our new baby. She appears to be a tortoiseshell shelty. She is making a funny squeeky snuffle sound that ive not heard before. Any ideas on what this might be? Slighty worried. It sounds a little like a fart noise lol but comes from her nose?image.jpg

Awww, she's a sweetie. I have 2 tri-colour shelties. Have you listened to her chest? It may just be her voice
Some piggies do have slightly croaky voices. Is her breathing steady? Is her nose clean and dry?

By the way, I'm in Chelmsford. Where are you?

She's gorgeous. I have a cream sheltie. Hope she's ok and someone with more knowledge than me can help shortly.

It could be a bit of a respiratory infection - either way you need to get her checked out by a vet to make sure as if so it needs treatment.

She's super gorgeous :love: I'm a sucker for shelties!

She is beautiful. I hope her noise is nothing untoward.

Do her sides heave when she breathes? Is she eating ok? I would get her a health check anyway, just in case she has the start of a URI. It could also be allergies, what is she bedded on?

She is stunning! Maybe worth a check up at the vets with the snuffly noise.

How weird. My Sheltie is called willow too. She gets a butt cut every so often to keep the wee away from her fur. I found this was easier and less stressful for her than a butt wash as she hates water and squeals like a piglet when she hears water :D
