    Bullying: Can boars reconcile after falling out?

    I have four boys: Fuzz, a four-year-old, Graham, Marshmallow, and Smores, a trio of one year old brothers. I needed to put Graham in his own cage over half a year ago because I caught him rolling...
  4. Urine: Re: Blood in cage, excessive drinking, possible stones

    Hi everyone,

    My girl is not 100% yet -- even though it has only been a week since we switched antibiotics, I'm still very anxious about her, even if she does seem to be in decent shape. She has...
  5. Urine: Re: Blood in cage, excessive drinking, possible stones

    Also, some side notes:

    1. Her weight has been steady. In fact, she actually gained some weight in the past week. When I brought her in to her regular vet, she was about 920g, and now she's...

  7. Urine: Re: Blood in cage, excessive drinking, possible stones

    Some bad news: The vet wasn't able to get back to me on her antibiotics dosage. I skipped her dosage yesterday morning while I waited because her stomach seemed upset. She wasn't eating as much...
  8. Urine: Re: Blood in cage, excessive drinking, possible stones

    Thank you for the quick response bpatters. Unfortunately it didn't really hit me how high the dosage is until I was about to give her another dose just now. I'm going to be cautious and lower her...
  9. Urine: Re: Blood in cage, excessive drinking, possible stones

    Thank you for your responses!

    I had her taken to the vet to be safe. They did an x-ray and didn't see even any bladder sludge, and when they pressed her belly to check her bladder they couldn't...

    Here is a picture of her just this Wednesday. She was so tiny I had to get her a water bowl to drink from, because even the small bottles were a bit too big for her mouth. (Apologies if the...
  12. Newborn Pups: Re: Baby developing slowly, nursing constantly

    It’s been a few months, I just wanted to share a final update.

    My runty girl just passed today. She always struggled with gaining weight, although she’s always been eating and drinking and...
  13. Newborn Pups: Re: Baby developing slowly, nursing constantly

    Thank you, that’s a relief. I also saw one of the boys rumblestrut and hump one of his brothers. Mum stood with her rear aimed oddly, so I think she was presenting herself? I picked her up and she...
  14. Newborn Pups: Re: Baby developing slowly, nursing constantly

    The little runt is in good spirits and has kept growing! As it turns out, the runt is a she and has three older brothers! She’s very sweet but noticably smaller than her siblings — still about 50 g...
  15. Newborn Pups: Re: Baby developing slowly, nursing constantly

    Good news: he has continued gaining weight and is gaining more interest in solid foods! It looks like he drops longer strands of hay and bigger pellets, so I put down the leafier bits of alfalfa and...
  16. Newborn Pups: Baby developing slowly, nursing constantly

    My foster pig delivered four babies on her own on the thirteenth. I found her while he was eating her last placenta, and all the babies were safe and already toddling around.

    A few days later, all...
