Do Pigs Snore?

Sienna is snoozing away under the ramp as I type and there is this sound like a snore. Darn, I hope it isnt another URI in my caviary. But there are no other noticable symptoms of URI. Her eyes and nose are perfectly clean. She's eating well, and stealing Reuben's veggies if he lets her, so no loss of appetite. Should I worry? Or just watch her? Perhaps it is allergies. We've had that before too during particularly heavy allergenic times of the year.

I've never heard any of my pigs make any noise while sleeping... although, I'm not really sure I've ever gotten close enough when they've been soundly asleep to know.

Fudge sighs right before he goes to sleep, he's done it since he was wee little. But he's usually pretty quiet while he's passed out.

Just keep an eye on her.

Well, she hasn't done it again yet, but I am watching her closely for any signs of it being anything else. I have had to use my asthma inhaler more frequently lately, when I normally rarely ever use it, so maybe the pigs can possibly be succeptible to the same allergens I am. I hope that's all it was.

I have to ask, do they also pass gas?

There have been a few times where I thought I heard it and even smelled something not-so-nice, is it possible?

Yes, piggies can pass gas, but they are quiet ones.

Funny you should ask, Sienna is also the only pig I have ever heard to pas gas. Although I've smelled it from some of the others. But Charlotte just pees on people. LOL (usually only when being medicated or given her hair trim.)

I had to laugh when I read that. One night when mine were still very young babies I heard the loudest emission of flatus come out of the cage. I never did figure out which one did it but it still amazes me that the offending baby did not go rocketing across the cage.

And there was the day that Sno pig was sitting on my shoulder and I heard this little noise and felt a little breeze on the side of my face. The little fellow shot me!

I have some very unique pigs. And I have a very odd sense of humor.

But they were so little and that was such a loud noise!
