Prairie dog sneezes

My husband and I got a 10 week old prairie dog a week and a half ago. For the last few day, more so last night, we have been hearing what we think is a sneeze but he squeaks when It happens and it was happening when he was sleeping mostly. we check on him every time and he seems fine, no distress. Is this normal? He sleeps on a cut up bed sheet of ours.

Alidra....

When your husband sneezes or coughs do you get a "reply" from your PD. Does the little one also stand up and throw his front feet into the air...it is known as a Yip-Yah well more commonly known as a Yahoo! It is a fantastic noise to hear a a very happy noise. Often things such as doors squeaking, coughs, sneezes etc.

My guess is you garden weasel is just keying up that voice that responds to just about noise they hear. Mine key the loudest when you either sneeze or cough. Just part of the social colony. Mine are at thier loudest when they are making love.

mine is sneezing too

I have had my PD for 3 years now and has been sneezing a lot lately. Her bark sounds like maybe she has a sore throat. No vet in my area will treat her. I was reading that this noice is normal? Please any advise will be great. She sounds like she has a cold.

My first advice is a vet visit...Since animals try to hide illness, there's no telling how long your fid has been sick. Do you have a specialist in your area that sees PDs?

Where are you located? Someone here might know of a vet, she honestly needs one as it sounds like she'll need some prescriptions.
