in the past couple of days i’ve noticed twix has been squeaking whenever she goes poo. she’s been eating and drinking normally and is no different than her usual self (from what i can tell) aside from this. probably going to make a vet appointment but was wondering if i should worry in the meantime or what it could be
caught it on video:

@ktsjs Definitely make an appointment. It's not natural for them to squeak when pooping, so something is uncomfortable for her.

It’s beat for you to start your own thread rather than resurrecting an old thread. Otherwise your question may be missed. If your piggy squeaks while toileting the beat thing is for you to take him/her to the vet.

the vet checked her over and said nothing stuck out but gave me pain medication for her and said if she was squeaking like that because she was in pain, she’d stop on the pain medication then start again when it ran out and if that happened she’d do more investigations. she didn’t stop squeaking on the pain meds though which meant she wasn’t in pain so i figure it’s just a habit of hers haha. over a year later and she’s still doing it

Was she put on antibiotics? I've got the same problem with my poppy.

We have a similar issue at the moment. Zinny was on baytril for two weeks and since then we have changed his diet which might be helping. It was suggested that he might have a UTI so was on baytril. He's now on sulfatrim for a week to see if it completely clears.

How has she been since?
