Re: I think she is sick.

Is she getting any Vitamin C? You know they cant produce thier own.. Try giving it some Vitamin C in their water in the liquid stuff, like you can get from "Sun Seed Company, INC." (Thats what mine get once a week) or an orange.. That may seice the sneezing probelm

Hope I could help some

Re: thanks

Yes.... Vit C is vital to a Guinea Pig. They cannot produce their own, and depend on the intake of it through the foods they eat. Pellet food doesn't provide enough Vit C, so fresh veggies and fruits should be in their diets.... plus Timothy Hay. :D I hope your piggy gets better. I'm sure the Veternarian will be able to help you. Good luck. :D
