    Uncooperative piggie

    Hi! I’m having problems with my two year old Abyssinian boar: he has a broken/missing tooth, which was almost definitely caused by a lack of vitamin c. I feed all of my piggies vitamin c tablets, which all except for Chewbacca (the pig in question) love. I’ve recently been trying even harder...
