    Guinea pig wheezing

    Video here:

    My girlfriend noticed one of my guinea pigs all of a sudden making this noise. It doesn't sound like a standard wheek and he's been consistently doing it all morning like a metronome. He was still eating okay, but after I picked him up and put him back down her stopped.

    It sounds like he's wheezing and/or having some kind of trouble breathing. Does anyone have an idea of what this could be?

    Re: Guinea pig wheezing

    Last week Sunday I heard my guinea pig cough and when I held her up to my ear I heard there was a slight wheezing. I took her to the vet the next day, turns out she has a cold. Now she's on 14 days of medicine (but it's in a sugar/water mixture so she loves it).

    Guinea pigs can get upper respiratory infections and it's not easy on their bodies, so I would suggest bringing him to a vet as soon as you can, just to be safe.
