my Guinea pig started acting a little odd these past few nights. He sleeps next to my bed, and I have heard him make, like gargling noises? I'm not sure if that is how I should describe it... like there's a lot of saliva in his mouth? And he has been sneezing more frequently. So I thought that i should look into it, and I found this website and did a little research. I only found that his " symptoms" was sneezing. and I didn't find anything that talked about the noise I've been hearing. and as I was watching him today, I noticed that when he peed one time, he seemed like he was in pain? Like he was squeaking, and curling in a little bit. so I guess my questions are: is the noise I am hearing a sign that he is sick? and is he in pain when he pees? can I solve this with home remedies, or should I look into taking him to the vet? and also, his stomach seems large. it has always been large since I got him 1 1/2 years ago, I always just thought he was fat. could he be bloated?
