i know it’s very late but iv just noticed this sound my piggie is making whilst having a nap, i’m so worried 😢 he first started faint whistling through his nose and then i noticed the creaking sound i know it’s coming from him and now I'm getting kind of scared it’s a URI. i do have a video though i’m not sure how to upload?

You have to upload the video to a third party site (such as YouTube) then post the link here. If you’re worried then you’re best off taking your piggy to the vet. Please try not to worry though.

They have narrow airways so if there is some dust irritation then it can cause whistling. However the best thing is to go to a vet for a check. If it is the start of a Uri, then you don’t want to leave it
