    @meghana, I took the link out of your post as I couldn't reach the video so the format might not work on this forum. My suggestion would be to repost with a video format you can attach to your post.

    One Drive might work for you because it's connected to your devices but when I clicked on it, it asked for a password. My suggestion would be to save it on your computer in a video format that can be attached here.

    the video works for you, because it's connected to your account. we would need to be on your account to see it.

    you can upload the video to YouTube and then post a link, then we can see the video and help you.

    I'm not doing anything to you. Yes, I care about a link because the one you provided to show people the shaking that your pig is doing, won't work for anyone who is not already connected to your account. If you want people to see what you mean, you will need to provide either an attached video or like @peachyteen said, a link to it on youtube so anyone can see it.

    I created a public link and tested it without logging into my account and it was working fine. Anyways, I've uplaoded the youtube video link below. Please check if you can access the video now.

    it just looks like he's breathing, but it might be somewhat fast/heavy.

    I don't really have any suggestions, except to listen when he breathes, and if it sounds heavy (like huffing) or if he's whistling, take him to an exotic vet and see what they can figure out.

    It looks like he's breathing fast rather than shaking which might be normal but could also potentially be a sign that he's struggling to breathe if this is what he's doing all the time, maybe a URI or a heart/circulatory problem?

    http://www.guinealynx.info/heart.html

    Why can't the vets do anything? They should be able to check his lungs with a stethoscope and/or x-ray. Check his heart etc. You need to find a good exotic vet. We might be able to help you find one if you tell us where you live (Not your address just country/city/state). Here's some more information that might be helpful as well:

    Yes, that works just fine. I agree that it doesn't look like shaking to me but heavy breathing. Has the weather been overly warm there? Has he been outside for extended periods of time? It could also be something internal. A vet visit should confirm or rule out anything serious.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Yes, I did take them to the vet. She suspected chest / lung infection and prescribed nebulization for 3 days. Apart from that, she prescribed Lasex and Enalpril tablets for 2 weeks. But even after three days of nebulization, the condition has not improved and that is the reason of my concern. This video is the latest video taken yesterday.
    @Fay I am a resident of Hyderabad, Telangana, India. @CavyMama The weather has been mostly cloudy for last one week with regular rains. Before that it was hot. Slight heavy breathing has been there for quite some time now - a couple of weeks at least, and has increased in last 3-4 days.
    I've taken him to 2 different vets over a period of last 3 weeks but nothing positive has come out of that yet.

    It looks to me like he has a respiratory infection. What medicine did the vet prescribe for the nebulizer?
