    After a few days of improvements, there is a new development tonight.

    We were told by the vet to stop the antibiotics for both pigs. Scooter had his last dose of Sulfatrim Friday morning at 6am....

    I think you desperately need a new vet.

    I have now had 3 boars who have had dental surgeries. My boar Sly endured 11 of them over an almost two year period. Both of my current boars had dental...

    Sick: Re: Trixie’s Medical Thread

    Sure sounds like poor Trixie probably inhaled some lettuce, or some other veggie. I'm certainly hoping that's the case. Sly used to have the same problem rather often, he would eat and then you hear...

    Thank you, spy9doc.

    I did video record it and showed it to the vet tech when I dropped him off this morning. It wasn't a seizure, he was reacting to the food being put in his mouth. The first...

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    Expert? It's unbelievably hard. So glad there are two of us to do it. It takes roughly 60-90 minutes to feed both pigs, depending on how well they take the CC. Every four hours. My wife takes the 2am...

  22. URI: Re: Just returned from vet -- questions

    You SHOULD see a definitive improvement within 48-72 hours, and sometimes as little as 24. That said, do NOT stop the antibiotics until they are finished. If you do, whatever bacteria she has can...

    Separating them is pointless now, as whatever she has the other two are already exposed to. Furthermore, if they ARE exposed they'll likely end up on the same meds shes on. Separating them is...
