    Sorry I didn't realize there were different places to post it , I rarely use this to post things I usually just learn by reading what everyone else posts the urine was dark when it was fresh, it's no longer that way so I believe it was from the purple swiss chard i fed them.

    Might be easier to post in the forum next time instead of a blog. We'll be able to see it much easier then. Is it dark when it's fresh? If you see it when it's not fresh, that's the color when it oxidizes, which is perfectly normal. If it's fresh and that color, it could have to do with their diet. This link might help you, and hopefully put your mind at ease a bit.

    Thank you, this is very helpful. The weird thing is, she had a URI already, she no longer has it because she has been treated and I don't think she can get it again. BUT, she seems very healthy, running playing, etc, and she sneezes A LOT. I don't know why? If you know anymore, pls do help.

    A pig sneezing is fine, as long as there's no other symptoms. I have one who sneezes from hay dust and the bedding at times, and he's been checked already. If the piggy is sneezing, and you notice other symptoms: congestion, crusty eyes and nose, and as always, not eating, lethagic, and weight loss, they need to be seen instantly.

    if a guinea pig is tired, and feels comfortable with their owner and living space, they'll shut their eyes to sleep. But I have also experienced my guinea pig sneezing about 10 times per day. Someone please help!

    Try cleaning her grease gland. Here is a great tutorial. Cleaning Your Guinea Pig's Grease Gland

    If this doesn't work I would try another vet. I hope this helps.

    Maybe your guniea pigs are deppressed? Try taking them out more, maybe tgey need fresh air. I would try hand feeding them and if that doesnt help i would visit a vet.

    This could seem to be an infection

    Hello, the first thing I want to ask is, how long have you noticed this happening? If it's only been one day, your piggy might just have inhaled hay dust. (Did you recently feed him the dregs of the hay store?) This could be a respiratory infection though, my piggy had one a few years back, so I would recommend a vet visit maybe?? I hope this was helpful.
