    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!
