Hi! I have two piggies (Patches and Carmal). My parents recently allowed me to bring them to the vet because of their persistent soft poops. However, they are worried about money. The last time I took Patches to the vet it cost a good bit of money. He had a mild infection, but is fine now. My parents want to only take one of them, so that we can save some money. We would just ask for the same thing for the other piggy. They are, however, different ages and weights. Would taking just one be ok, or do I need to take both? I don’t know what I will do if we have to take both. Any advice is appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Please take both, just for the sheer stress relief. Your vet should hopefully not charge double when diagnosing for the same problem as the cause and treatment should be the same. You can ask beforehand at the clinic anyway.

Thank you so much! I’ll tell my parents this. If they do charge extra, I’ll be more than willing to pay. Though I may be in debt to my parents!:xd:
