Default How much sneezing is normal?

Generally healthy and high-energy rat, but sneezes relatively often. Bedding is low dust. Breathing sounds normal most of the time, with a snort here or there. Some porphyrin. Is this normal or should I be seeking some help from my vet?

no, that is not normal.
You need to see if anything is irritating the rattie .... dust, bedding (as you mentioned), scents, smoke etc
