One of my piggies this morning had like white stuff in both eyes. It just look like a drop of milk had splashed into them. Cleaned them up, keep an eye no him all day and it has not come back so far. Does anyone know why or what it is.He is fine in himself no other problems.
Many Thanks

Hi There

I have had piggies have this too. I think its natural and is just their tears. I wouldn't say it was anything to worry about but just keep an eye on your pig.

Hope this helps :)

Scarby always has sticky eyes after sleeping (and always has since a baby). I have to wipe them up!

I think it is something to do with grooming, I saw something on a website that said that it's a secretion that they use to wash themselves with. Mine get it as well, some more than others, I think if it's not yellow or green than it's not an infection.

you are totally correct its for grooming i was worried about this years ago and found out what it was for, so no worrys, if you watch your pig he will groom just after the white liquid forms,
