Hi guys. I rescued two pigs about 2 weeks ago. They are 6 months old. They go in and out of the house all day and they sleep inside at night and they basically come in to be with us around 4 for the night. I have a walk in shower so they join me pretty frequently. They don’t mind it as long I have treats and it’s a nice little bonding time and a chance for them to get use to me handling/touching them. A few of you suggested I touch them all over while they are little so they can get used to it.
I just don’t want to upset their skin and do it to much. I use a very gently hypoallergenic shampoo I use on my toddler. But these are pigs and not a child ha. Just wanting to make sure this won’t harm them if it’s often.
so yesterday i went and picked out the pig i wanted. i got a boy, he’s a berkshire/hampshire… everyone is telling me not to get a boy bc they’re so aggressive, should i reconsider? they also said to get him neutered to calm him down. he’s only 6 weeks
What is your pigs favorite snack?
I'm shocked. I knew pigs were smart, but she already is looking at the back door when she needs to go outside and immediately goes potty when we do. She has an accident once or twice a day, but it's usually after she was sleeping and realized she needs to go NOW when she wakes up.
I also am shocked with how desensitized she is. There isn't any sound that bothers her and she lets us poke and prod her anywhere. Our cat likes zooming around and jumping over her like she's a hurdle and Peachy couldn't care less. Idk if this will change when she goes through puberty, but we plan on spaying her anyways.
Squee I squee I Oh
We want to get our 1 year old male (neutered) minipig a companion piggy. What sex would you recommend? Would two males get along or would a male and a female be better?
She has the best temperament
What do you think of Pippa for a name? I love Pippa, Ramsey is the middle name, what do you think?
My 2yr old fixed male is suddenly having trouble walking due to him not wanting to put weight on his back left hoof. The vet came, said it wasn't a fracture or anything like that, said she sees a "bit of an infection" in his back left hoof and gave me antibiotics. We're on day 5 of 10 on the antibiotics. He still won't put pressure on his back hoof. I had an amazing farrier come out and she did all his nails and said they looked great, his back left hoof did look a bit red so she advised to keep giving the antibiotics. Which I would have done anyway... but he doesn't seem to be getting better and that really scares me. Any advice or knowledge of this issue is deeply appreciated.
