As the title says, I really want to take my piggies to the vet to see if anything's wrong with them but they're still too scared. What should I do? Should I wait longer until I can pick them up or what?

Don’t put off a vet trip because you can’t pick them up, you could place a carrier with some hay and veggies in and wait for them to crawl in

Picking them up in a tunnel or fleecy sleeping bag is the way to go! Only 1 of our 6 piggies can usually be scooped up easily by hand without getting scared, and since her vet trip-skin tests-yucky baytril experience this weekend she's not letting us near her, not even for watercress which is her favorite!
