seems pretty ok, I mean if she's definitely drinking and she's eating fine and seems fine, then I guess all is ok! :) :)

Maybe is that the meds have just made her really thristy?

baytril yes.. that'll help her for sure..

Maybe its just cos of the amount she's drinking and it's just flushing her body out.. cos afterall she's been ill and so the bad stuff is just coming out. But if she's otherwise fine then I don't see any need to worry.

Maybe someone else will have a better idea, but I would say that shes fine

Pregnant piggies drink a lot of water - has she ever been with a male? How old is she? She could have gotten pregnant at the pet store, if that's where you got her.

However, I doubt it. Probably just the meds and your feeding her veggies, dry food and hay right?
