    Herbs: Re: Is this herb mix safe for piggies?

    Okay thanks. That's kind of how I was leaning too. I work at an animal shelter so I'll just give it to the birds there.

    Skin Problems: Does this sound like a fungal infection?

    Let me start off with saying all pigs have been treated for mites recently so I don't believe mites are the problem. My three pigs have been itching more than usual the past couple of months. I...
