Tonni's to have his teeth trimmed again tomorrow as they are soo long! - Incisors -

They don't stop him eating though! ;) He had them trimmed 6 weeks ago and the vet said to come back every 6 weeks for them to be done again, although I think (by looking at them) it needs to be done sooner. It wasn't my usual vet last time, but will ask more tomorrow.

Wow he's a placid little guy, what a little darling to let the vet do that to him.
Perhaps he understood that it would make him better ;D
Good luck with his teeth, keep munching Uncle Ton :-*

Poor old Uncle Ton. George knows all about teeth and sends big manly piggy hugs to dear old Ton :-*

I do the front teeth myself and they go off to a local rodentologist if they need anything doing to their back teeth. Vets insist on putting them under to do back teeth work which is always risky whereas the rodentologist does them without. She has this little strait jacket for them and a thing to keep their mouths open and lays them on a pillow underneath a light/magnifier. The pigs don't mind at all and there's no risk from anaesthetic. Obviously this is only for simple trimming/filing work and nothing surgery wise which would need anaesthetic.
