Hello and welcome! Timon (great name) is so cute! He looks really big too, how old is he?

Timon develop ringworm sadly, his on his 5th day of treatment as we is showing sign of getting better, I have notice a weird sound when I pet him, could it be because of the medication? Since it is close to his nose? Either way he was vet appt tomorrow, will find out till then...

does it sound like a purr? If so nothing to be afraid of all piggies purr when there are happy or relax mine does it all the time when I pet her.

No sadly it's no a purr, cause I've herd him purr before, it's just the sound he regally makes but with a weird sound I can't describe it...like if he had a cold or something like that....:(

Update on my piggys ringworm as you can se it looks much better! It's been day 6...but should I continue a week more? Or that's enough?

It's after and then before....


One more q? Can piggys get the flue or cold from humans?

It does look a lot better. I'd still keep treating him for the ringworm. Piggies don't catch colds but I think someone did post they can get the flu. I know they can catch bacterial infections from us.
