Thank you for all of your help. I really appreciate it. He’s only a young pig, maybe coming up to a year old. Do you think there is any long term management options for him?
With all due respect and as much as I know how desperate you are for a clear answer, it is the one question I cannot answer, and neither can your vet. All you can do is hang on in there and hope for the best.Thank you for all of your help. I really appreciate it. He’s only a young pig, maybe coming up to a year old.

Please give glucosamine every day in order to support the urinary tract and make him confortable for the long term.Update: Odin is home! he was so happy to see us, jumped into my arms and purred all the way home. We still have to regularly medicate and back for a check up next week. The vet says it was definitely bladder related but he couldn’t quite figure out exactly what. But he’s not in discomfort now and we just need to keep up feeding and syringe feeding if necessary.
I’m so so happy. He was so happy to see his brother again too!
Thank you, I will. Is it normal for him to still be showing some pain at this point? Occasional squeaking when passing droppings? Even though he’s had sludge removed and secondary X-rays where clear?Please give glucosamine every day in order to support the urinary tract and make him confortable for the long term.
The contents of 1 capsule of Feliway cystease every day, dissolved in 2 ml of water. Give 1 ml twice daily to allow it to build up. It is a big help when dealing with any bladder/urinary tract wall damage (trauma).
Hi!Also: it’s like he wants to eat but he’s struggling to chew. And he produces excess saliva. I’ve mentioned this to the vet before, but do you think I should call them back again?
you are perfectly entitled to get a second opinion from a different vet if you don’t feel like they are listening to your concerns. If he isn’t eating then there is something going on that needs to be explored and addressedJust spoke to the vet. He said they checked his teeth 9 days ago and that it’s unlikely to be teeth or fungal infection.
but he started chewing weird 3 weeks ago and it can’t be a coincidence that he won’t eat now. I feel they don’t believe me
