I want to take a moment to introduce you all to my lovely little lady: Butterscotch. I've had her for two weeks and I'm thrilled she's finally settling in. She just had a wellness check and passed with flying colors. The vet seemed very knowledgeable about piggies. I was told that after 6months(of age) they don't need to be fed pellets. He said they dont offer much and don't support them using their teeth. Has anyone else heard this?

Welcome to the forum your piggie is adorable. And after 6 months of age they need about 1/8 cup or so Timothy based pellets under 6 months they need unlimited alfalfa based pellets but they always need a long stranded hay (Timothy,Orchard,Bluegrass etc) 24/7 unlimited. Alfalfa hay is not one of these and is not even needed at all really. They also need an appropriate mix of daily vegetables in their diet.
