Don’t give her carrots, it’s not the best way to get her weight up. You will have to step in with syringe feeding now. Start every 3 hours and adjust depending on her weight tomorrow. She’s not eating enough hay to maintain/put on so you’ll have to help her. Sorry.

We're just done with our first session and we've come by about 9 ml of feeding as she's very much willing to take them all

Piggies lose weight because they aren’t eating enough hay. Don’t give her carrots to compensate - if she is losing weight then she needs to be syringe fed fibre rich food and to eat more hay.

:agr: Try giving her more if she will take it. You will have to now feed her every two hours round the clock. The aim is to get her to take 60ml in a 24 hour period. I’d also perhaps have her seen by the vet again.

To be honest i feel like she's just being a picky eater. She loves this certain type of wheatgrass i introduced to them and ever since she's low on eating her timothy hay. But whenever i open the bag of wheatgrass they instantly go and eat them. Whenever i offer timothy they just refuse and eat the wheatgrass sigh 😭

Sorry that this thread got so long than i intended. We are back on these pointy looking poops (perhaps because of less intake of fiber from the past 1-2 days--which also explains the weight loss from that day) we've gotten her weight up again and she's eating a lot of wheatgrass as i figured i needed to put the grass they're eating there because they need to eat :soz: we cant take her to the vet until next week as it's my midterm week in uni and ive got no one to take her

What is wheatgrass? Is it a grass based hay?
I think so as it says they can have them daily. But ours is dried not fresh. I'm still waiting for our orchard hay to arrive so for now ill give them a mix of timothy and wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is fine for them to eat, but Id wonder as it’s more of a treat not a replacement for hay. I'm not sure, I’ve never fed wheatgrass

I think it's more of a treat they're so addicted to it tho. I was combining it with their timothy and then gradually decreasing the wheat grass so they'll be forced to eat the timothy. We'll be switching to a mix of orchard (when it arrives) and timothy as they've become picky

Plain porridge oats are great for building up piggies weight that have been poorly
