I'm already there.

The hutch that I keep: Genga Ben and Jerry in.

Well today I opened the door to give them their morning food and they'd poop'd in the bowl as usual, no problems. Except that When I looked, it was a dark brown liquid that moved quiet freely.

I haven't fed them beetroot or anything unusual. The thing that concerns me is:

I noticed that Genga, has really large balls...like, REALLY prominent. he hates being picked up and will squirm away at any possible moment...

I'm crying because in my head he's got cancer or something,

someone please reply?!

When mine had the run's I put her in her own cage and gave her hay only and it went back to normal the next day, sometime's they just eat more han their fair share in veggie's or the poo could of been sat in wee making it go watery

so do I, I wouldn't be quiet as worried if he'd always been mine, if that makes sense? But i've rehomed him from a really nice lady on here, so I don't know his pastxxx

Does he seem ok in himself? Eating, drinking, pooping ok now? If you're not sure then put him in a clean box and watch for evidence!

Are you sure they didn't poop in the bowl and then pee ontop?

I have a stinky pair here that do that and it makes a liquid brown water like stuff in the food bowl?

If he looks at all hunched up, or sitting in the corner, or less bright than usual then I would get him to the vet now. If not and he goes downhill it will be much more expensive to see a vet out of hours / emergency.

But if you are just freaked out by the poop liquid in the bowl and the pig is otherwise normal, then monitor his poops and water consumption and see how he is.

Sophies right about vets bills they get pretty nasty out of hours. It may be worth making an appointment for today at a vets that's open just to be sure.

Diarrhea can be quite serious.

Just got back from the vets and they said the only thing that is wrong with him is that he probably has mites... :/ i'm setting up a seperate cage to keep him seperate from the little ones to make sure he's okay.

Thanks for the advice everyone

now all I have to do is worry about the flue i've got :/
