Not very often, Penny sneezes. Once or twice, most I saw were 3 sneezes in a row, which only happened one time not so long ago, 1-2 weeks. Then tonight she has this sneezing fit. Nothing really changed. The only thing I did was give her a hay and pellet stuffed toilet roll. She was playing with it, trying to get the pellets and all of a sudden she starts sneezing. The hay and pellets are what she's always had. I've given her toilet rolls in the past and no sneezes. Not sure if this is normal for her to be sneezing out of the blue. Could there be something wrong? (btw, she's not sneezing anymore now. Gave me quite the scare.)

Sounds like she might have poked herself in the nostril with some hay whilst playing with the toy, if there is no discharge and no further sneezing

I can't give Franz pellets in a bowl because he will get a sneezing fit from the dust even if I shake the dust out, there is still some to make him sneeze.

My buns do that once in a while. Like 5 sneezes all in a row. I suspect they get dust or hay up their nose. Sneezing is the only way for them to get it out.

I also have this problem with my Wilbur, taken him to the vets twice with no prevail, so I am now wondering if it could be his pellets.
