    Wet Butt

    Allies butt is wet?

    I just got there new cage today, And when I picked her up to put her in the taxi her butt was wet?

    Her hair is pretty long on her butt, Is she grooming herself?
    Does she have worms?
    Is it just pee?
    Should I go to the vet?
    SO if you know please tell me!


    I forgot this was to go under medical! sorry I'm just really scared she's sick!

    I've never heard of a case of worms in pigs.

    If the hair on her rump is a bit long, it's most likely pee causing her butt to be wet. Especially if she peed where she happened to be at the time.

    Your post was moved but not to medical because it's not a medical issue.

    This makes me feel a lot better!

    Should I trim the hair?

    Medusa I keep the hair on Gizzy's butt super short cause she loves to sit in her own pee, water, anything wet she can find!! It really helps to keep the hair their shorter than in other areas.
