Does anyone have any advice regarding piggy care after castration! Podge is going to have his op tomorrow and also having a cyst removed from his back. Poor little man. S'going to be a long day at work tomorrow waiting to go and get him :(




Not to worry then, its okay i've just found old posts regarding castration.

Good I'm pleased. Keep him on towels or soft fleece blankets, so he is nice and warm :) Vet bed is also excellent. Tasty treats to stop him biting his wounds too.

Podge's op: Advice please! xx

Thanks everyone. Took Podgey back to vets yesterday to have his wounds checked, all okay. I have him on towels and he has a cuddle cup to snuggle in. This morning though I notice he is a bit 'loose and squidgy' with his bowel movements, I'd be really grateful for any advice... any suggestions? xx

Ooo sorry not had that esperience befire, i'm sure you'll get some great advice from someone.
Feed him his normal veggies and treats and lots of TLC, good luck Podge :)
Perhaps it's the medications and stress of the op?

Thanks Glynis, I did wonder too whether it was just the anaesthetic kind of 'coming out'. He seems okayish in himself, a bit grumpy maybe, but that's understandable and nothing unusual for Podge. I'm so sorry to hear that your piggy is poorly too, I really hope he picks up and bounces back. They are a worry aren't they, but when you love animals you can't help but sense when they are not themselves, and do all you can to help them. I have a dog who's 14½ years old, she likes to worry me every so often and I think 'the time' must be approaching, then she proves me wrong every time, thank goodness. Kind thoughts to you and your piggy :-*
