My guinea pig is sneezing a lot from when I got her (2 weeks ago)! She is also making weird noises and I'm getting really freaked out! I'm a beginner with this so I don't know D:


My guinea pig patches has been sneezing since I think like after a week after I bought him I have had him to the vet they gave some meds and I gave them all to him but he is still sneezing. I use that paper kind bedding that is like toliet paper for them and I clean their cage every other three to four days and clean their blankets and stuff that I have in their cage. But he seems to be sneezing I have a female but she doesn't sneeze she sometimes coughs or chokes but that's it but I was just wondering if there was something over the counter that I could give to them?

My guinea pig is almost 2 years old and I have raised him from birth, the last week or so I have noticed he has been sneezing HEAPS! and with lots of mucus, however he doesn't have any of the symptoms of URI and I have not changed his bedding,Blankets etc. I own four piggies (2 girls and 2 boys kept in separate cages) and none of the other he this problem. Help! I am worried about his safety, does he need a vet?
Thanks ^__^


My Piggy named Pan has been sneezing lately.
We have him in wood chips for the past few weeks but hes only started today.
