Default Is there anything I can do to prevent URIs?

Tried digging in the archives for this and didn't come up with anything so sorry if it's repetitive.

Pig saw the vet yesterday to be treated for his second URI in three months and I have a coule questions:

- What can I do to prevent URIs? I thought I was doing everything right to keep him healthy, but maybe I'm missing something.

- If he has allergies, is there a way to differentiate allergies from an infection, aside from having mucus tested? He doesn't really sneeze enough to notice a difference by changing his environment to test for an allergy.

I think I had another question but can't remember right now...

I'm sorry Pig is not feeling well.

Air purifiers with true HEPA filtration can be a huge help with environmental allergies.

Assuming it works in Hedgies as in humans: It can be both allergies and an infection, the allergies make it easier for infections to take hold.
