We have two female pigs, both just under 2 years old. One is currently in heat but seems to have been for a while, over a week now. She keeps trying to mount and hump the other one, literally nonstop. We also noticed her teats have become swollen. Any ideas what’s up, or if it’s just a hormonal thing that will pass? She’s never normally like this in heat.

Hi and welcome!

:agr: fully with @Piggies&buns . It rather sounds like a hormonal ovarian cyst. At this age, it is typically smallish growing ovarian cysts that cause the seemingly constant seasons and moody/aggressive behaviour.

Please take the time to read the guide link above so you have an idea what your options are when you see a vet.
