Lately I've been hearing this strange honking noise, almost like a guinea pig makes, or a bike horn, coming from my rat's cage at night.
I've never really heard this before it seems to happen when one of my boys starts sniffing around. He has a tiny amount of porphyrin around his nostrils that i noticed today. wondering if something is wrong?

Sounds like it might be an upper respiratory problem.

My sister saw her rats opening their mouths, only shoeing their gums, and going "QWA." A bit like geese.
It's not infection, (vet check..)
It's more like when they fight, Vicki said they'd been a weird litter, lol..

That kind of sounds like the sound my dog makes when she gets a hairball in her throat.

I doubt ratties should make honking noises. Going to the vet just in case is probably the best idea!
