    Guinea pig sneezing even after talking medication

    I took my guinea pig to the vet a few days ago and the vet decided my guinea pug was sneezing and occasionally coughing because of allergies. He said his heart and lungs sound good but he still sneezes a lot and I hear clicking on and off even after giving him 0.1 ml of diphenhydramine. Any thoughts?

    Sneezing, coughing, and a clicking sound when breathing are classic symptoms of an upper respiratory infection. If that's the case, an antibiotic is needed as this is a serious illness that will not resolve on it's own. Here is a link to more information on URIs.

    Make sure you have a vet that treats exotics or pocket pets and not just small animals. A small animal practice is dogs and cats.
