my piggies have been eating and nibbling on the rubber around their bottle, I've put the bottle higher to where they will reach the bottle but not the rubber part, should I be worried? its only a tiny bit but I'm scared they are going to be ill from it? advice? I think we may have another bottle that doesn't have the rubber on it, but if it does is there anywhere I can get a bottle that doesn't?:mal:

Try not to worry too much, my lot are always eating things they shouldn't (the sofa, puppy pads, plastic pigloo etc.) and are fine. Keep an eye on them and if they stop eating become lethargic or show any signs things are not right get them checked by a vet. Not sure what you mean by rubber on the bottle, I use the Crystal ones (Wilkinsons) which have a metal spout and plastic top, or the New World glass ones (Pets at Home) which have a metal spout and top.

okay great, I will attach a photo tomorrow of the bottle when I get home from college, thank you for the reassurance though x
