    Boars smell after neutering

    Hi, My two boars have recently been neutered, bless them. Health-wise, they are both doing great. They’re both eating, drinking, pooping etc. But they both stink! It’s a very pungent smell (one is worse than the other) that’s quite hard to describe. I’m not sure if it’s seepage from the...

    Weight Loss

    Mr Muffin was neutered last week and when I weighed him yesterday he has lost about 22g. I weighed him again today and he has lost about 25g.
