So I got my guinea pigs about 4 weeks ago and eve since I first got them they've been sneezing a lot. They eat and drink fine, they run around a lot and aren't really shy anymore, their poops are normal, and theres no discharge coming out of their noses or anything weird coming out of their eyes. Is there just some guinea pigs that sneeze a lot? I have checked both of them multiple times after they've sneezed and there hasn't been anything coming out. Their breathing seems fine and to me, they seem ok, but maybe guinea pigs aren't supposed to sneeze a lot idk ahh😖

It could be they’re eating or drinking too fast, or the hay/bedding is dusty. They also sneeze when cleaning themselves. If you’re worried there’s no harm in taking them to the vet for a check.

Thank you! That's usually when they sneeze haha so I think they're ok. They're popcorning and zooming right now loll. I feel like every day there's something new I'm worrying about with them😭

You have to tell yourself to relax and not worry about every tiny thing. But if you see something out of character you can always take them to the vet for peace of mind.
