Wierd Sneezy Cough/Choke sound

  1. Ok - one of my piggies 'Dooley' occassionally makes a kind of choking cough sound - is this anything serious? it seems to be when she eats in a rush or if she is eating hay it sometimes happens too - it almost sounds like a hiccup but a bit more 'harsh' than that...

    Anyone else heard this odd noise? or know what it may be?

    :o)
     
  2. .... Also - she appears to not eat hard vegetables that well - as in her teeth almost dont seem strong enough... either that or she likes to eat them slower than the other pigs! (perhaps i'm being too over cautious etc) she is only about 5 months old, perhaps it is to do with the younger piggies not being as stong as a grown up pig! :-\
