One of my piggies makes weird noises at night...? Any ideas?

I have noticed within the past couple of days that one of my piggies makes weird noises at night. It is a deeper sound when compared to the sounds she normally makes when shes puttering about and it only happens at night. Other than this mystery sound, all of her behaviors are normal and unchanged.

I wish I could better explain the sound, but it is like her chutting sounds but in a deeper tone. It only happens at night, and I am not sure what it could be.

I don’t know, but if I had to guess, it might be snoring. Hopefully it’s not anything too serious!

I found this link. Is it any of these? http://www.guineapighub.com/guinea-pig-sounds.html

Or if it sounds like this,

It’s very serious either a UTI or another breathing/heart problem - and if it’s like this it’s very important you take your piggie to a guinea pig savvy asap, because UTI and some other breathing/heart problems are fatal without quick treatment. But make sure the vet know about guinea pigs, has to be a vet with exotic experience.

She stopped making the noise and now I am not sure what to do. It kinda sounded like that video but hers was much deeper. She made the noise one evening and has not made it since....
I am not sure what to do now!! :(

Hope she gets better. Maybe she was chewing on her cage?

I would keep a very close eye on her. And take her to the vet if you can. Also try to record the noise if she makes it again, so you could show the vet. If she seems to display any behavioral changes or seems lethargic in any way. I would take her to the vet asap. Hope everything turns out okay!

Thanks all! She is still her normal crazy self & just made weird noises that one evening. However, I am keeping a close watch on her and am prepared to take her to the vet if needed.

Go all over the internet and try to find out what the noise is. I was going to say chirping because my guinea pigs chirp at night, but not often, but you said it was deep not a high nose. So be specific in your searches!
