    Sick: Re: Bella lethargic

    Have you tried wrapping her up like a burrito? It worked very well for Sly. It worked well for Punkin too until he became agitated. Scooter hated it so much that it got to the point where if I...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Bottom left is definitely diarrhea. It's not quite liquid, but I would monitor him closely if you find more of it.

    The green colour also possibly indicates too much veggies.

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    Thank you for the update. One oz fluctuation on a weekly basis is considered normal, so Pigsilver's weight seems to me to be fairly stable which is great.

    Very happy to hear that Spiderpig is...
  7. Bonding: Re: Not sure if this is a failed bonding or if I should keep trying?

    As long as there is no bloodshed, leave them together. They have to sort out who is the boss and that will take some time. It sounds to me like a typical introduction. Once they've sorted...

    Sick: Re: Bella lethargic

    Small poops indicates she isn't eating enough. Simon lately has been blasting through 12 oz OVERNIGHT. He's backed off some and seems back to normal now.

    At least she's eating but perhaps a...

    Yeah, 75 should be no problem at all.

    If she isn't drinking, you can syringe her water or feed her really wet stuff, like cucumber. After what happened to Scooter, pigs that don't drink...

    Vet Costs: Re: Curious of prices in your area

    I am so sorry you are in this situation.

    Vet costs vary widely, even in the same city. I also am in Ontario, Canada. Those surgery costs do seem to be fairly in line with everything I've...

    They are pretty new to you, and I think you probably just need some time to figure out just what all their noises mean.

    Bags have been driving me nuts as well, since they started packing them this way. I may just start with the 50 lb boxes through Amazon.

    Nothing new in the house at all. No changes. I did notice one odd behaviour, only once. If it was what I thought it was it would explain everything, but I don't know. Not something I really...

    Oh, I do hope it's just the heat, and he'll come around later. Ignoring treats isn't great, but I've had pigs do it before and come around later.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Sounds to me also, that the most prudent course of action would be to remove the eye that's causing a problem. From what I've seen recovery from that surgery is usually a couple of weeks.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Yes, it does look pretty nasty. Other than his eye he sounds pretty darn healthy to me. I know you will do what's right for him. Fingers are crossed on my end for everything to work out.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    My boys send their wheeks and grumbles of support for Little Bear. It's pretty obvious that he gets the love and care from you that he's never gotten elsewhere in his life.

    This really may not be a medical issue, but it's Simon's thread so it seems like the best place to put it.
