Thank you once again cyber ratty,I might have solved the problem I made a hammock out of an old bandana i used to wear at work,but forgot to wash it.i was a builder so you can imagine the dust.we took it out of cage yesterday and she seems to have calmed down I'll obviously keep Keen eye on her.but wot a idiot.lesson learned . cheers anyway
Seems I was wrong about the home made hammock although I think it didn't help but she's still sneezing so I've decided to change bedding, I've sent for some hemp i read it's supposed to be good for allergies so thought I'd give it a try.fingers crossed.
Hi , update on bedding sneezing issue, I've used hemp for about a week now she wasn't too bad for couple of days thought I'd cracked it . but shes doing it again I've washed all toys, hammocks,ropes ect, still no better. But I've noticed the sound is more of a chirpy sound,with a sort of body movement as if she's coughing but she's not wheezing,and she's fine in herself eating well drinking well.she also seems worse at night and in the evening. Are these noises normal ? She sometimes gose all day without any sounds then seems to have bad spell.
