Weird breathing noises
 
Raven has some weird breathing. I don't know if it's because she has a URI or not but it sort of worrys me. Penelope has sounded like that one time but then she was fine after a day. Raven on the other hand has sounded like this for a little bit, I've just noticed it last Friday. She eats and drinks normal so no funny business should be going on. Any tips?

Define weird breathing. Did Penelope do her weird breathing before or after Raven came to you guys?

Also, are you seeing a drippy nose?

Penelope did it wayy back in winter. I mean like when she breathes it's not like a simple noise. it's almost like when you're sick type of noise. Its wet but not majorly wet.

OK, look for runny nose, licking her nose, sneezing, and any bubbling. Any of those could be a sign of a uri. If you see any of those you need a very visit quickly.. You don't want to play pass the infection between your girls.

Thank you so much. I've been keeping an eye on her and so far when she's been out she hasn't been licking or sneezing. I think I may bring her anyway just to get her a check up.

That would be a great idea since she is new to your house and you want to make sure she is in good shape for Penelope's sake.

Yeah I think all the new smells from the move where bothering her sinuses. Plus I don't know if she's been to a vet before. But her owners seemed to be on the ball of things with her so yeah. But the hour drive to the vets will be nice with all the nice weather out here!
