Hi! :)
I was wondering how I should care for Stubbins after she comes home from her procedure/anesthesia?
Any advice is much appreciated!
Thank you!

The important thing is to get them eating and pooping again as soon as possible, even if they are very sleepy and havent much appetite, try to get a few mls of recovery food or mushed up pellets into them every few hours! Use a 1ml syringe with the tip cut off to make the end wider if possible, then the food wont come out too fast and they wont choke and breathe it in. But some piggies do just sail through anaesthesia and are tucking into the hay and veg again the day after, hopefully this will be the case!
