When I took Gizmo and Pip in as unwanted pets back Dec, they were on the slender size, Gizmo more so. However after a couple of months with me they are starting to become rather tubby. Gizmo is 3+ years old and Pip is 15 months now so should be finished growing.

I'm looking for advice on which parts of their diet to reduce to stabilise their weight? Should I cut down their pellets ( they don't get a huge amount) or veg or both? What veggies are most suitable for tubby pigs? Obviously their hay isn't something I'd reduce as that is a good filler.

Hmm, maybe feed less pellets. I wouldn't restrict veg though if you are restricting pellets, just don't feed sugary things, like fruit and sweetcorn. I think they should have around 50g of veg a day and 30-50 of pellets, but that s not always the case. Of course hay would not be restricted though :)
