Poor Dr trembles a lot - when I give him his syringe food or after a bath or at the vets. Is this just anxiety?

I expect he is just feeling scared. I find snuggling up nervous pigs in their own fleecy blanket can really help them. If you use the same one for a few days it gets their scent on it which will help them feel safe and reduce the nerves.

Dr has used a tartan fleecy thing. I thought he could have it again tonight!
