So I just got a guinea pig from the store. And she has harness around her nose and she sneezes I don't know what that means but I'm very worried do you guys have any advice for me? Thank you her name is Maggie by the way she's so cute I don't want her to get hurt.

Harness? I think it corrected it lol but as for the sneezing is there any discharge? Eyes watery? Any crust around the eyes,ears or nose? Is her breathing loud or raspy? Have you just given her fresh hay because that could make her sneeze and how often is it? Just the once or a couple of times

Usually frequent sneezing could be a URI but I wouldn't worry too much as it is usually accompanied by crusty eyes,ears or nose, discharge from the nose and eyes and heavy whistling etc. Sneezing isn't too worrying my piggy Mo sneezed quite a lot and I rushed him to the vets to find it was an allergy. Haha! I would wait and see how the piggy is in the next few days unless there is more worrying signs. And your welcome we are more then happy to lend advise :)
