    Boar Mammary Tumour Post-Op

    Hello! Binks is a 3.5year old boar who had 2 mammary tumors removed 3 days ago. He's eating veggies non-stop, isn't very fussed about the pellets (his usual feed) but will pick + choose what he likes from the meusli mix. Usually only use the mix when we run out of pellets as this is available...

    Is This A Good Thing?

    I’ve had my new baby piggy for almost a week and I want to know if what she’s doing is normal or good. Whenever I take her out for floor time or to just hang out, she likes to crawl up my chest perch on my shoulder like a little parrot. She also likes to climb into and up my sleeves and gets...

At night, after they’ve eaten their veg, one of the piggies starts to constantly drink water for 10/15 minutes and the bottle has become louder :/ she keeps going back to drinking after every few minutes, I’ve only noticed this after...

    New Baby Guineas Not Drinking Water

    Hi everyone I've had two new piggies (about 9 weeks old) for a week now and they don't appear to be drinking water. I've tried giving them a bowl but they just throw stuff in it (including poops) and even changing that every chance I could didn't seem to help. I've given them as watery...

    Drinking Amounts...

    Ever since the girls have started living indoors they have been drinking a little less, when they were outdoors they had a classic pet shop water bottle and they were drinking half a bottle every day, more particularly in the hot weathers. The indoor cage I bought came with a water bottle and...

    Concerned About Eli

    He tilts his head when he drinks water and gets his chest all soak and wet. I remember someone else said their pig tilts his head also. Is this normal? Our Vet rechecked his teeth and they look good and he is eating just fine.
