My mums pig is bleeding from the nose, just a little, but for two days we have thought it was his red pepper.

Last night he was really lethargic and interested in his food but not eating much.

Ringing vets when they open at 830, anything think uri?

Thanks

Hmm sneezing could of caused a nosebleed but I've never had a piggy have a nosebleed occur from a URI and its a very unusual symptom for a URI.

Could hay have poked up his nose?

omg absolutely devastated, got to the vets, just as we pulled up he started gasping for air.

They tried to resuscitate (?spelling) him but sadly he has left us and gone over to the bridge.

A very very special boy, will be missed HUGELY by the whole family.

Rip Bennibenbo, love you fatty x

They just think it was typical uri symptoms, although not sure about the blood. It was only a little bit.

Just for the record, he hadnt lost an ounce of weight and was a whopping lad, really really sturdy and healthy. He just started being lethargic yesterday tea time and this morning he was gasping for air, really really quick, none of us expected it, which is very naive i guess, but i have never seen it happen so quick.

Guess you live and learn.

Just need to convince her to rescue another baby or two now ;) but we are going through the 'but he was so special' stage, and he was, dont get me wrong, he was fab, he never peed on you, always went in the same place and told you where he wanted to go, he was free range most of the time, he had a wonderful life with my mum & dad, but i will keep trying because in my eyes they are all special, and it isnt replacing its helping another.......
